{ 11 + 11 + 11 = }

Armistice Day...

went into effect the
eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month
in 1918.

...not until 1926 did November 11th
actually become known as a holiday in the United States.

June 1st of 1954...
the name was changed to Veterans Day
to honor all United States veterans.

To all who've served this Great Nation...
Thank-you for an extraordinary job, well done.
Happy Armistice Day Bloggyland.
