The Armistice Ends World War I Today, 100 Years Ago
NOVEMBER 11, 1918
Armistice Ends World War I
2,171,569 Americans serve in Europe (1.39 million see active service on the front).
53,513 combat deaths
63,195 other deaths (mostly due to pneumonia and influenza)
204,022 wounded in action
58,000 gas casualties (2,000 fatal)
Horrible losses for a little over a year's action.
Today, we honor all veterans on this day.
