Happy Veterans Day!
North America: Veterans Day
World War one officially ended with the signing of The Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919. However, November 11, 1918 is known as the end of “the war to end all wars” because an armistice (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.
Memorial Day is More than A Three Day Weekend
Remember Those Who Serve: Memorial Day
A traditionally solemn event, Memorial Day later became a holiday to remember all of the brave men and women who have fallen in service to the United States. Long-established celebratory events include Memorial Day parades, flag lowerings, and the donning of red poppies.
