Millis Veterans Day Observance, Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Memorial Square, WW1 Memorial in front of the American Legion Hall at 136 Curve St., Millis

The Ceremony begins promptly at 11 a.m. with a moment of silence.

This year, November 11th at 11 a.m. marks the 102nd anniversary of what was known as the Armistice, which brought an end to World War 1. World War I was a global war originating in Europe that lasted from 28 July 1914 to 11 November 1918. Approximately 117,000 American Military personal died during the war. It was then known as the “Great War” and the war to end all wars. Armistice Day is now known as “Veterans Day,” which is dedicated to the “living” who have served or are now serving in the United States Military. 


This year also marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the American Legion Post 208 in Millis.

This year’s observance is open to the public. Although the ceremony will be shorter and smaller than usual, it will not detract from paying tribute to all those who have served or are now serving in the United States Armed Forces.
