Veterans Day ceremonies were held last Wednesday evening in Wellington. While the holiday commemmorates all servicemen and women each year, it was started to honor the end of World War I, which was ended by an armistice on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. Congress made Veterans Day a federal holiday in 1926.
