Alley Poet’s Pen: For the Troops…

 

Alley Poet's PenNashville, TN – Once, in another life, I found myself seated atop the rear of a convertible Corvette in a Veteran’s Day parade, cruising 5MPH down the streets of the township where I was an elected councilwoman. I’d been called up last minute (just that morning) by a fellow councilman colleague, as though I was to know of the tradition that existed each year.

There would be a program of festivities and a ceremony set up at the local park. As we waved and smiled at our neighbors and friends, I saw the councilman pull out two typed sheets of paper from the breast pocket of his suit. When I asked what it was, he said, “You know we’re making speeches.”

Veterans Day: Soldiers Discuss Service

 

Written by Army Staff Sgt. Tina Villalobos
301st Public Affairs Detachment

United States Department of Defense - DoDHohenfels, Germany  – Although World War I officially ended June 28th, 1919, the fighting had stopped several months earlier, when “an armistice … between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.”

U.S. President Woodrow Wilson declared November 11th as Armistice Day, according to the Veterans Administration. Through legislation passed June 1st, 1954, Nov. 11 became Veterans Day — a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Since the 9/11 attacks against America, many U.S. service members have become seasoned warriors, some with multiple deployments under their belts. Many troops have chosen to continue their service in the military.

Soldiers serving in Germany discuss values, service, and sacrifice as Veterans Day, observed Nov. 11, approaches. Here, Army Sgt. Charles Roseboro prepares to perform preventive maintenance checks and services with his comrade during Exercise Combined Resolve V at the Joint Multinational Readiness Center in Hohenfels, Germany, Nov. 7, 2015.

Veterans Day

 

U.S. Department of Veterans AffairsWashington, D.C. – World War I, also known as “The Great War” at the time,  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.”

Soldiers of the 353rd Infantry near a church at Stenay, Meuse in France, wait for the end of hostilities. This photo was taken at 10:58am, on November 11th, 1918, two minutes before the armistice ending World War I went into effect.
