On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice between Germany and the Allied nations came into effect. On November 11, 1919, Armistice Day was commemorated for the first time. President Wilson proclaimed that this day should be “filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory.”
Veterans Day is intended to honor and thank all military personnel who served our Country in all wars. Throughout both internal conflicts and world wars, America’s veterans have dedicated their lives to protect those at home. It is marked by parades and church services, and in many places, the American flag is hung at half mast. A moment of silence lasting two minutes may be held at 11:00 am. Remember their service and bravery at one of the monuments or memorials in the region.
New York offers several inspiring memorials where visitors are welcome year-round, so take some time to honor America’s heroes on this day, November 12, 2018.
