The Christian Science Monitor answers why Veterans Day falls on 11/11 . . .
American troops made significant headway in 1918, rebuffing a German offensive along the western front and moving Allied forces deeper into enemy territory. By November, Germany had had enough. It agreed to a cease-fire, signing the official armistice at 5 a.m. on November 11. The treaty took effect six hours later. On the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month," as the saying goes, the world knew peace once again.
The "War to End All Wars" had ended. For the next 36 years, America remembered November 11 as Armistice Day.
