Veteran’s Day – November 11

In the USA, Veterans Day annually falls on November 11. Epworth will be honoring our Veterans from all of the branches of The Service on Sunday, November 11, 2018, which is actually Veteran’s Day this year. We will be sharing in a photo montage of our members, families and friends who have served our country.
Photos used in previous years at Epworth will be used again this year unless otherwise requested. You are invited to add to our list of Veterans being Saluted by submitting photos online (click here) or dropping them off in the church office to be scanned – be sure to pick-up the photos that you drop off. Please include the Service Member’s Name, Branch of Service, Rank and Years of Service (example 1940-44) and any special honors they may have received.

 Veteran’s Day Remembered

    This day, November 11, is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. Veterans are thanked for their services to the United States on Veterans Day. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 an armistice between Germany and the Allied nations came into effect. 
    Veterans Day is intended to honor and thank all military personnel who served the United States in all wars and conflicts, particularly living veterans. It is marked by parades and church services and in many places the American flag is hung at half mast. A period of silence lasting two minutes may be held at 11am. Some schools are closed on Veterans Day, while others do not close, but choose to mark the occasion with special assemblies or other activities.
