Yesterday, November 11, 2018, was the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, which officially ended World War I. It is a federal holiday, and since it fell on a Sunday, we observe it the following Monday. Schools are closed and this is our post.
World War I was also called the "War to end all wars." A famous American author, D.H. Laurence said this about that war: "I can only see death and more death, till we are black and swollen with death."
Veterans Day is the day we honor all those who have served in the military since WWI. In the past 100 years, the United States has been involved in 18 other wars, including WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Iraq War. You can see the complete list here.
