NOVEMBER - November 11 is a day set aside around the world to remember the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice. In many counties a moment of silence is observed at 11am. So please take a minute to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom.
On November 22nd Americans will be celebrating their Thanksgiving.
