As it does yearly, KEI will pause for 2 minutes of silence this morning at 11:00 a.m. to remember and thank those who have died, served or serve today in our Canadian Armed Forces.
Today back in 1918, the First World War officially ended on Armistice Day and hostilities ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. More than 595,000 Canadians enlisted, of whom 422,000 served overseas. Following the Second World War, Armistice Day was changed to Remembrance Day, which commemorates all the Canadian men and women who died in the Boer War, two world wars, the Korean War and in other actions for the United Nations.
