Armistice Day 100th Anniversary

Armistice Day 100th Anniversary Celebration
Sunday, November 11, 2018 | 10 a.m.

On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month in 2018, Americans across the United States, along with individuals worldwide, will mark the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, pausing to recognize those who have sacrificed and those who will sacrifice in the defense of freedom and democracy.

Please join veterans and community members, including Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, Washington State Parks, Kiwanis Club, and members of the Society of the Honor Guard, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (SHGTUS), as we gather at Maryhill’s Stonhenge Memorial on November 11 at 10 a.m. to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
We will pause and lay a wreath in remembrance of the sacrifices made by so many of our countrymen and women, including the 14 men from Klickitat County memorialized at Stonehenge. The commemorations will also include a brief history of the Stonehenge Memorial, a chance to learn about each of the 14 men who served in the American Expeditionary Forces, remarks from our guest speakers, and conclude with the National Salute and taps.
 
The National Salute, initiated by the SHGTUS in 2015, is a national moment to show our profound gratitude, respect and love for our Unknown Soldiers buried in the plaza of the Memorial Amphitheater in Arlington National Cemetery and for all of those who have served and sacrificed in times of war or armed conflict so that America might live.
 
As more information becomes available we will post it here, including a detailed timeline.
