Austin Peay Sports Information
Clarksville, TN – In honor of Veterans Day, Austin Peay State University’s athletics department started auctioning off 101 camouflage jerseys on its website at 11:00am (CT) today, November 11th. The auction can be accessed at www.LetsGoPeay.com/Auctions and will be available through Wednesday, November 26th.
The time and date of the auction’s start is significant as it harkens back to the origins of Veterans Day – Armistice Day which commemorated the end of World War I, with an armistice that took effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
Clarksville, TN – For most of us, Veteran’s Day is a day of special meaning. I believe that’s especially true for those of us who call Clarksville, Tennessee our home.
Every day we see men and women in uniform working and volunteering in our community. There are also hundreds of people who have stayed in Clarksville after their active-duty years and who continue to make our community richer.
Washington, D.C. – In this week’s address, in advance of Veterans’ Day, the President paid tribute to the men and women in uniform who have given so much in service of America.
Veterans have risked their lives to protect our freedom, and we need to be there for them when they return from duty by ensuring they get the care they need and the opportunities they deserve.
The President asked every American to thank and welcome home the veterans in their lives who, like all who fight for our country, are heroes worthy of our constant gratitude and support.
Washington, D.C. – Known at the time as “The Great War”, World War I officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28th, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France.
However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11th, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”
