Once known as Armistace Day, America celebrates Veterans Day every November in rememberance of the ceasefire that ended WWI. The end of combat was marked by an armistice, a truce or ceasefire, in the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in the year 1918. Massachusetts will honor veterans this Wednesday with a variety of events. From celebrations at Galvin Middle School to a formal ceremony at the Massachusetts National Cemetery we will say a word of thanks to every veteran who served this country, putting their lives on hold for the freedom we enjoy today.
