It’s Veterans Day, a time to thank and honor military veterans around the world!
Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11 every year because it’s the anniversary day of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I.
The German signing of the Armistice formally ended most of the major hostilities of World War I at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
Take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices made by veterans and active military members around the world, while watching this time-lapse video of the USS Carl Vinson being transformed into the biggest Veterans Day celebration in America, the 2011 Quicken Loans Carrier Classic!
Now that the transformation is complete, celebrate Veterans Day with us by tuning in to the 2011 Quicken Loans Carrier Classic tonight at 7:00 PM ET on ESPN!
