Veterans Day (US) or Armistice Day (UK) annually falls on November 11. This day is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Excerpt from the Poem ‘For the Fallen’ by Robert Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)
