Let’s Talk Holiday Cooking - Keep Food Poisoning off the Guest List

Veterans Day 2015

In 1918, on the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, the world rejoiced and celebrated.  After four years of bitter war, the Allied powers signed an armistice with Germany in a rail car of Generalissimo of the Allied Armies, Marshall Foch in the forest of Compiegne at Rethondes, France, bringing the First World War to a close.  All over the globe, there were many celebrations; no doubt the world never before witnessed such rejoicing.  “The War to End All Wars,” was over.

In November, 1919, His Majesty King George V, stated, “All locomotion should cease, so that, in perfect stillness, the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the glorious dead.”  President Woodrow Wilson issued his Armistice Day Proclamation.  The last paragraph set the tone for future observances:

To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nation.
