Veterans Day is celebrated around the world as Armistice Day. Veterans Day grew out of the Armistice signed to put an end to World War I in 1918. On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month the world goes silent for two minutes to reflect upon peace and how we can put an end to war. As Army combat veteran and friend Max Siegrist shared upon returning from Vietnam, “If you want to help a veteran, put an end to war.”
