    Armistice Day
    "Armistice Day is commemorated every year on 11 November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918. The date was declared a national holiday in many allied nations, and coincides with Remembrance Day and Veterans Day, public holidays." Wikipedia

    WWI turned out not to be the "war to end wars" so it was changed to veterans day in the U.S. to make it more universal.

    Hmph. I thought this was going to be a time travel/prescience thread.

    Tomorrow, I got hit by a car.

    Tomorrow, I met my great-grandfather and discovered that I have a claim to the throne of Thailand.

    Two of my dad's brothers served in WWI, (Dad was the last of 9 children and was born 1908). Uncle Joe served in the the 1oth Field Artillery from early 1918 to Late 1919, Uncle John's unit was the Ammo train. Dad served overseas during WWII, as a technician in the radio shack (not his original assignment, but he was transferred after they learned that he had been a ham radio operator as a civilian.)
