11 11 11

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 the guns of November fell silent as an armistice between Germany and the Allied Nations went into effect. The Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919 and in November of that year, President Woodrow Wilson commemorated the end of World War I with the words “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”
The United States made November 11 a legal holiday on May 13, 1938 with the intention of honoring those who had served in the great war of 1914 to 1918. Unfortunately this was not the war to end all wars and after Americans served in World War II and Korea, Armistice Day was changed on June 1st, 1954 to Veterans Day to honor all American war veterans. After a brief period from 1971 to 1975 when Veterans Day changed yearly to accommodate three day weekends, the observation was moved back to strictly November 11 each year.
Today is Veterans Day. I wear with pride the label Veteran.
