November 11, 1918 – Armistice Day

On November 11, 1918, World War I ended with an armistice. The armistice came at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month … 11am, November 11th, 1918.

At that time it was “The Great War”, and the war to end all wars … no one would have believed at that time the atrocities that were waiting for our great nation and our world.

The armistice was a temporary agreement at that point until the final treaty was signed in 1919 at Versailles.

Today I honor all those who have served our country in our military. Those who returned home, those who made the greatest sacrifice, and those who remain missing to this day – but never lost in our hearts. I thank you for making this country great and for protecting the United States of America with great dignity, honor, and courage. God bless all who serve and who have ever served in our military, God bless their families, and God bless the United States of America.

Amen.

  1. Wow, I did not know that. What a wonderful post. Thank you.

  2. I’ve been fortunate enough to watch the changing of the guards 3 times at the tomb – an awesome occasion that every American should experience.

    When are you going to convince Paul Ryan to throw his name in the ring? When will the media get that Romney isn’t going past 25% for a reason and give the so-called second tier candidates some play? When is Rick Santorum going to publish some details of his plans on his website so I can try to vote for someone with moral character (besides Ron Paul)?

    • Hi Vince – I must have missed a memo somewhere that it was my responsibility to get Paul Ryan to run! ;) I’ll see what I can do.

      • Ok. Maybe a little presumptuous to imply it’s your responsibility. But, I’m getting desperate. I’d like to get behind a candidate. But, I haven’t found The One yet.
