Honoring vets this Veterans Day

The Treaty of Versailles was signed in Paris on June 28, 1919 to officially bring an end to World War I, but fighting had ceased with an armistice seven months earlier, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. That’s why, until 1938, Nov. 11 was recognized as Armistice Day. With the first fired shots of WWII only about a year away, Congress, at the chiding of veterans service organizations officially changed Armistice Day to Veterans Day to honor American veterans of all wars. This is the story of Veterans Day, or at least the story of how it came to be. Read the full story and more in your Weekend edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
