Armistice Day 2021 is fast approaching!
As we do every year on November 11th, Veterans For Peace has taken the lead in lifting up the original intention of November 11th – as a day for peace. As veterans we know that a day that celebrates peace, not war, is the best way to honor the sacrifices of veterans. We want generations after us to never know the destruction war has wrought on people and the earth.
Join us in taking action to Reclaim Armistice Day! Visit our Armistice Day webpage for action ideas, resources, a list of planned chapter actions, and more.
