Veterans Day falls on November 11 annually. This day is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. Veterans are thanked for their services to the United States on Veterans Day.

Please join Newspapers in Education in thanking all who have served and those that have given the ultimate sacrifice.
