text size: AAA
By Daily Herald Report

The village of Carpentersville celebrated Veterans Day with a ceremony inside Parkview Elementary School.

The ceremony included a drum line from Dundee-Crown High School, a song by Parkview students and a rifle salute by American Legion members.

And though Veterans Day ceremonies took place across the suburbs Monday, the first observance of a holiday on Nov. 11 was in 1919 a year after the end of the first World War I. It was until 1954 that Nov. 11 went from Armistice Day to Veterans Day after a proclamation from the president to honor U.S. veterans from every war.
