At the 11th Hour on the 11th Day of the 11th Month...


Remember why it is this day that we in this country call Veteran's Day. Remember that other names preceded this one, and that in other parts of the world those names are still The Name.

Remember that this month, this day, at the hour specified marked the end of hostilities in the War to End All Wars. Remember, too, that War did not end all wars.

Remember those who went and did not come home. Remember those who did, and know this; some may look whole, some may not, and none of them are. All left something of themselves behind.

Remember them all.
