Monday is Veterans Day. Originally called Armistice Day, it celebrates the end of the Great War – World War One – at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, one hundred and one years ago. Today it is a holiday to honor all military veterans.
Now let’s go back to the final hours of that day, 101 years ago…
The last three soldiers to die in the Great War -- representing the British Empire (Canada), France, and the United States.
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them." (For the Fallen, by Laurence Binyon)
