World War I ended with an agreement, called an armistice, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the year. November 11th became known as Armistice Day to honor the men who served in WWI. While it is still celebrated, the date is more commonly known in the United States as Veterans Day to honor all American Veterans. In Europe, today is Remembrance Day.

Hug a veteran today!
