Armistice Day

At 11:11 am on November 11, 1918, major hostilities of World War One formally ended. Tomorrow, in memory of that day, and in honor of the millions who served, we recognize Veterans Day. November 11 is celebrated around the world as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day. It was proclaimed a U.S. national holiday in 1938 with the words “a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace.”
