November 10, 2006World War I ended Nov. 11, 1918 at 11:00 AM. Then on Nov. 11, 1921 at 11:00 AM an unknown solider was burried in Arlington Cemetary, inscribed on the tumb are these words, "Here lies in honored glory an American solider known but to God." Without proclamation the day became known as Amistice Day. Then in 1954 Congress honored our American dead and changing the day of rememberance to Veterans Day. Lest we forget, every year on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour a wreath is placed on the tomb of the unknown solider and taps is played.
I hope we truckers take a moment to remember those who have and are giving their all for God and country on this Veterans day.
