A century ago, the Atlanta lawyer-turned-president of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, announced to Congress that the ”Great War” had ended with the surrender of Germany.

“The present and all that it holds belong to the nations and the peoples who preserve their self-control and the orderly processes of their governments; the future to those who prove themselves the true friends of mankind,” Wilson said. “To conquer with arms is to make only a temporary conquest; to conquer the world by earning its esteem is to make permanent conquest.”

A year later, Wilson commemorated the first Armistice Day saying, “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”

Armistice Day evolved into Veterans Day, and on this Veterans Day the Daily Report salutes all who have have served the country in the military. Readers overwhelmed us with their response to our request for photos and information about their military service, and we present them here.

(Thanks to John Disney for compiling the photos and information.)
