Saultities gathered Sunday morning in honor of those who served and sacrificed their lives so we could have the freedoms we have today.

This year marks 100 years since the end of World War I at 11 a.m. on November 11, 1918, when Germany signed an armistice (an agreement for peace and no more fighting) that had been prepared by Britain and France.

Although this marked the end of the war, it wasn’t officially over until June 28, 1919, when Germany and the Allied Nations (including Britain, France, Italy and Russia) signed the Treaty of Versailles, formally ending the war.
