On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month…..thats when World War One concluded, ending the “war to end all wars.”
And that’s the reason most Veteran’s Day services are held on November 11 at 11 in the morning. However, this year, Veteran’s Day falls on a Sunday and a number of veteran’s groups and communities will host Veteran’s Day observance on Monday, Nov. 12.
The White County VFW Post 3851 and Carmi American Legion Post 224 will present the Veteran’s day services at Veteran’s Park, in downtown Carmi, across the street from the city building, Monday morning at 11.
After the service, the VFW will host a light lunch. In case of rain, the Veteran’s Day service will be moved to the VFW Hall.
