Bells of Peace: A World War One Remembrance

Submitted: Mobile Bay Area Veterans Commission

On behalf of the Mobile Bay Area Veterans Day Commission, I would like to invite you to take part in a very unique national celebration. 

The World War One Centennial Commission is asking that people across the nation ring their bells on Sunday, November 11 at 11:00 a.m. in commemoration of the Armistice Centennial.  This movement, known as Bells of Peace: A World War One Remembrance, is designed to honor those American men and women who served in World War One and to commemorate the signing of the armistice agreement on November 11, 1918 at 11:00 a.m. one hundred years ago. American citizens and organizations across the country are invited to toll their bells twenty-one times in remembrance. The bell tolling provides a solemn reminder of the sacrifice and service of veterans of World War I and the cost of freedom and peace. 

We are inviting you to join this inspiring remembrance in Mobile and Baldwin counties that will not only take place across America but in former Allied countries in Europe.  Please help us spread the word throughout our community. 

Bells of Peace is a national collaborative program that includes the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Society of the Honor Guard of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, World War One Centennial Commission, and Pritzker Military Museum & Library. For more information and to register your organization, please visit their website at https://www.worldwar1centennial.org

The Mobile Bay Area Veterans Commission is pleased to share this information and invite you to celebrate and honor the memory of those that served and sacrificed so much in World War One…

"The War to End All Wars.”
