Wisconsin Adjutant General’s message on Veterans Day
It’s been 100 years since the nation observed the first Armistice Day, the precursor to Veterans Day.
At 11:11 a.m. on the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, guns fell silent across the battlefields of Europe, marking the end of World War I.
A century later, the nation pauses at 11:11 a.m. each year on Veterans Day to honor veterans for their sacrifice no matter when or where they served.
Wisconsin’s adjutant general, Maj. Gen. Donald Dunbar, had a message to say "thank you" to everyone in the armed forces.
