November 11 was originally known as Armistice Day, to commemorate the ending of World War I on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. In the UK and Commonwealth countries, it continues as Remembrance Day, and the intent is to remember those who fell in the line of duty. The U.S. changed the name from Armistice Day to Veterans Day in 1954 to honor all veterans. Film Noir Photos

In honor of Veterans Day, all the songs I'll be playing tonight on the Swing Shift Shuffle will have a military theme.
