November 11th is a special day for several reasons.

• 1920: The burials of the unknown soldiers take place simultaneously in Westminster Abbey, London, at the Arc de Triomphe, Paris.
• 1921: President Harding dedicates Tomb of Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery.

For us all, November 11th is the day we pause to remember our nations Veterans and the sacrifices they collectively made for this country to be the most prosperous nation in the history of man.
