Sunrise Baptist Church honored some of its Veterans during its Mid Week Service on Wednesday, November 9. Sunrise has a large number of Veterans and will honor them at a Special Recognition Ceremony Sunday, November 13, during Morning Worship. Did you know the end of World War I in 1919 prompted the Veteran’s Day Holiday? A temporary cessation of hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect the 11th hour the 11th day the 11th month. In 1938, Congress made the 11th of November a legal holiday known as “Armistice Day.” In 1954 the holiday’s name was changed from “Armistice Day” to “Veterans Day”, to honor all American veterans.
