Thank you to all who have served – you are in our thoughts today.
Why November 11th? On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, World War I ended. In 1921, an unknown World War I American soldier was buried in Arlington National Cemetery (and similar unknown soldiers were buried in England & France). All of these memorials took place on November 11th to commemorate the end of “the war to end all wars.”
