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.
