Veterans Day Monday

Today is Veterans Day or Remembrance Day or Armistice Day
or Victory Day or World War I Memorial Day. The name of this
special day may be different in different places throughout many
nations; but its significance is the same.

It was on this day at 11 a.m. in 1918 that World War I ceased.
The Allied and Central Powers signed an armistice agreement at
5 a.m. in Marshal Foch’s railway car in the Forest of
Compiegne, France. Many still bow their heads in remembrance
at the 11th hour of this the 11th day of the 11th month.
