(Photo) On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month

Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day, which commemorated the end of World War I--on the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th hour is when the Great War ended in 1918.

Remember those who served today and thank them.

This photograph was taken last night at a Park Ridge, Illinois fire station.
