November 11, 2011

11-11-11.
It's more than a day that Hollywood can use to promote and debut movies in a fun way, or a date that couples can use to forever remember their anniversary. This year, and each year, November 11 commemorates the lives of all American veterans — past and present — for the sacrifices they made by serving the country.
The history of Veteran's Day dates all the way back to 1918 when an armistice, or a truce, put an end to World War I (also known as The Great War) on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
