At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the armistice treaty between the Allies and Germany was signed, ending World War I.
Since then, this day has become the day to not only celebrate the end to a brutal and bloody war, but to celebrate and honor all of the veterans of this country. Military service in this country is not required, but is left to those who volunteer. It takes a person of great personal strength and commitment to take on such a serious commitment, even moreso during a time of war.
Remember today to honor and thank all former and current members of our Armed Services for everything that they do to keep this the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.
