The tradition of Veterans Day dates back to WWI to mark the end of fighting on November 11, 1918. The name Armistice Day was later changed to Veterans Day. In communciites across the country there will be parades...quiet memorials...and graveside visits to remember loved ones who served. There are about 380,000 veterans who currently live in Minnesota. Around 60,000 veterans call North Dakota home. Over 100 people attended a ceremony in Grand Forks to honor those who have served.
