The 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month

Thank you to all military personnel who serve and protect our country.

It's the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I in 1918. Until the mid-1950's, this holiday was known as Armistice Day, but the name was changed to Veterans Day in order to honor all United States veterans, not just those who served in World War I.

The ribbon image in the Always Remember stamp set from Close To My Heart can be stamped using colors representing many different causes; i.e. pink for breast cancer awareness, green for environmental awareness, blue for a traditional 'blue ribbon' winner, or any other color with a special meaning. The striped paper used for this card is from the CTMH Free Spirit paper packet.
