Armistice Day

November 13, 2011
The OBSERVER

We will not see the date 11-11-11 again for 100 years until Nov. 11, 2111. The significant date that just occurred, Nov. 11, 2011, refers to Armistice Day. The armistice was signed between the Allied Nations and Germany on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month at the end of World War I in France on Nov. 11, 1918. This war was called the "Great War" and the "war to end all wars." Historically the name Armistice Day was changed by President Eisenhower in 1954 to Veterans Day to commemorate all of our fighting men.
