Grandview - The members of Grandview's Fred E. Hayes Post 57 of The American Legion are requesting Grandview and Lower Valley citizens to observe a moment of silence at 11:00 a.m. on Veterans Day, Tuesday, Nov. 11th.
World War I, then called "the war to end all wars," ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. The date became known as Armistice Day. After other wars, it became known as Veterans Day.
"For years, this was a tradition," said Robert Gates, Commander of the local Post. "However, it has fallen out of use, and that's really a shame."
