“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
—President John F. Kennedy
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, fighting during World War I ceased when an armistice went into effect between the Allied nations and Germany on November 11, 1918. The following year, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day. In 1954, the 83rd U.S. Congress amended the act that had made Armistice Day a holiday and on June 1, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the legislation making November 11 a day to honor American veterans of all wars.
Today, Music Therapy For Veterans honors all those who have served this country as the nation remembers and thanks the men and women who have protected, defended, and preserved the principles and ideals that define our democracy on this Veterans Day.
This We’ll Defend.
