The 11:11 a.m. on 11/11 is obviously not a coincidence. The time is meant to commemorate both Veterans' Day and Armistice Day. On November 11, 1918 at 11:11 in the morning, the Allies and Germany signed an armistice in a train car at Compiègne, France, marking the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I. The date has become an international day of remembrance for veterans around the world, and gave birth to our modern day version of Veterans' Day.
