Mayor Joseph Curtatone and the City of Somerville honored Somerville’s veterans at the Somerville Allied Veterans Council Annual Veterans Day Ceremony.
The ceremony took place on Wednesday at the George Dilboy VFW Post located at 371 Summer St.
While many realize that Veterans Day, which always falls on November 11, is a day to honor our Veterans, few realize the historical significance behind the day. Veterans Day originated as Armistice Day and marked the end of hostilities of World War I that occurred at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.
