The significance of Veterans Day is to commemorate the ceasefire between the Allied nations and Germany "on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" of 1918, to end World War I. It was President Wilson that proclaimed November 11, 1919 the first Veterans Day, also known as Remembrance Day and Armistice Day. (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, http://www.va.gov) It is from that day on that we have reserved November 11th as a day to remember and thank the men and women, and their sacrifices, so that we have the freedoms that we as citizens of the United States are granted. Thank you to all Veterans for your sacrifice and service.
