Veterans Day
A man reaches out to touch names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial following Veterans Day observances Thursday, Nov. 11, 2010, in Olympia, Wash. Fighting in World War I ended when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918. Armistice Day, primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, was changed in June, 1954, when November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
