Honoring All Who Served November 11

On the “11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month” in 1918, the treaty to end World War I was signed, and this day became known as Armistice Day. The United States renamed this day Veterans Day to “honor all who served” in all conflicts, both living and dead. Memorial Day, celebrated on the last Monday of May, had already been designated shortly after the American Civil War to honor soldiers killed in action.
