Does anyone remember that it was called Armistice Day and begun as a celebration of the end of WWI? The day was picked because the war officially ended on the 11th hour, 11th day, of the 11th month of the year.

And for those wondering, no I was not there to witness it.

That was 90 years ago, so very few veterens of that war are still with us today. It has of course become known as Veterens Day and is a celebration of those who fought in all of Americas wars. Hope they all have a great day and thanks for your service to me and mine.
