The city of Princeton honored veterans in a ceremony held in Veterans Memorial Park Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m.
The armistice ending World War I was signed between the allies and Germany at 5:45 a.m. Nov. 11, 1918 but took effect at 11 a.m. hence the significance of “the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.”
Fire Chief Tom Harvey, who served as a Marine, hosted the ceremony and the Princeton High School Band played the national anthem and a medley of the service hymns representing each branch of the military.
