Veterans' Day Ceremony

This year’s Veterans Day Observance will be held on Thursday, Nov. 11 on the east side of the McLean County Museum of History in downtown Bloomington starting at 10:30 a.m. This year’s ceremony will commence at 11 minutes before 11 a.m. with U.S. military veterans firing one round each minute until 11 a.m. The Museum will also be offering FREE admission to all veterans today.

Veterans Day began as Armistice Day to mark the cessation of hostilities during World War I on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. Today, it is a federal holiday that is observed to honor people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
