It’s a day to honor our veterans

Tuesday, Nov. 11, 2014 — This year marks the 100-year anniversary of the start of World War I. Fighting ended four years later when an armistice between the allied nations and Germany went into effect on the 11th hour of Nov. 11, 1918.

One year later in November 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice day.

According to va.gov, the original concept for the celebration was to observe the occasion with parades and public meetings.
