Eleventh hour

Every year we honor the courageous men and women who have served our country, but how much do you know about this holiday and our great veterans?

• Veterans Day celebrates veterans of all wars.

• Nov. 11 was chosen to commemorate the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918 that signaled the end of World War I.

• Of the 16 million Americans who served during World War II, about 300,000 are still alive today.

Be sure to reach out to a veteran in your life and say thank you on this day dedicated to their bravery.
