THE HISTORY OF VETERAN'S DAY - World War I, then normally referred to simply as The Great War (no one could imagine any war being greater!), ended with the implementation of an armistice [temporary cessation of hostilities—in this case until the final peace treaty, the infamous Treaty of Versailles, was signed in 1919] between the Allies and Germany at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of November, 1918.

(May 28, 2006) - The Vietnam Veterans Memorial recognizes and honors the men and women, who served in one of America's most divisive wars. The memorial grew out of a need to heal the nation's wounds as America struggled to reconcile different moral and political points of view. High Resolution Image
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a place where everyone, regardless of opinion, can come together and remember and honor those who served. By doing so, the memorial has paved the way toward reconciliation and healing, a process that continues today.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial accomplishes these goals through the three components that comprise the memorial: the Wall of names, the Three Servicemen Statue and Flagpole and the Vietnam Women's Memorial. U.S. Navy photo by Journalist 1st Class Kristin Fitzsimmons (RELEASED)
