The 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. It is a moment in time that has left a deep impact on some, while others may be wondering what it signifies. This is the exact time in 1918 that the conflicts of World War I finally ended, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. Armistice Day, as it was originally known, was renamed Veterans Day in 1954. Since then, every November 11th has been officially observed as Veterans Day.
