YESTERDAY IN HISTORY

The Allied powers signed a ceasefire agreement with Germany at Rethondes, France, at 11:00 a.m. on November 11, 1918, bringing the war now known as World War I to a close.

President Wilson proclaimed the first Armistice Day the following year on November 11, 1919, with these words:“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…” Originally, the celebration included parades and public meetings following a two-minute suspension of business at 11:00 a.m.

In honor of Veterans’ Day, we would like to recognize the following people for their service:

Coach Chris Bragg

Mr. Dwain Mickey

Mr. Bobby Moore

Dr. Harley Williams

Mr. Neal Tomich

Mr. Reginald Haymond

Mr. Tracy Fowler

Mr. Vince Giardino

Mr. Kelvin Talley
