Our Towns tribute to our Veterans…
November 11 marks the end of World War I. To be more precise, fighting officially ended at 11 AM, November 11, 1918--the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month!
On November 11, 1921, an unknown World War I American soldier was buried in Arlington National Cemetery. This site, on a hillside overlooking the Potomac River and the city of Washington, became the focal point of reverence for America's veterans.
