11th hour, 11th day, 11th month

November 11, 1918 at 11:00 am – cessation of fighting between Germany and the Allies in World War I resulted in an armistice. As Paul Rieckhoff from Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America points out, “Veterans Day is not about debating the wars or partisan politics. It is about the men and women who have served in our armed forces, and they deserve our gratitude.
