Veterans Day

America celebrates the bravery and sacrifices of all veterans, both living and deceased. Veterans Day should not be confused with Memorial Day, which honors service members who have died in service to their country or as a result of injuries incurred during battle.

World War I officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. Fighting ceased, however, seven months earlier when an armistice between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
