Veterans Day was known as Armistice Day before 1954. Armistice Day was originally established to commemorate the end of World War One. The “war to end all wars” concluded, officially, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918.
People have heard of “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” and want to learn more. So they go to the internet and do a search. Guess where a lot of them are winding up. I’m probably not what they expected.
