Celebrating Veterans

VeteransDayWorld War I officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”*

Veteran’s Day is a time to honor the brave men and women who have fought and currently fight to protect our country. We would like to take a moment to thank all of those who have served and currently serve in the U.S. military for your bravery in keeping our country safe.
