Honoring our veterans

Over 100 years ago, fighting ceased when an armistice between the Allies and Germany went into effect on Nov 11, 1918. One year later, US President Woodrow Wilson declared Nov 11 as a day to commemorate  Armistice Day by saying, “To us in America, the reflection of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory…”

An Act approved May 13, 1938 legitimized the day as a holiday—a day to honor and remember the brave soldiers who have fought for the United States of America.
