World War 1 ended on November 11th, at 11:11 in the morning, 1918. In 1921, England, France and the United States each buried an unknown soldier to honor the date and in the US, Armistice Day was created to further honor those who paid the ultimate price. In 1954, President Eisenhower changed the meaning of the day to honor all those who served in every war America fought in. In an interesting quote by Churchill he said, “You have enemies. Good. That means you’ve stood up for something.”
