Veteran's Day

It used to be Armistice Day. In the UK and Canada, it's Remembrance Day. On the 11th day of the 11th month 86 years ago today, the War To End All Wars came to a close. In America, the impact of WWI is sometimes forgotten, due to our limited involvement. It shouldn't be. The Great War began the 20th Century, shattering the world's politcal structure, culture, and setting the stage for the horror that was to come.
