On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, fighting between Germany and the Allied nations temporarily ceased, and so Nov. 11 has been a day for our nation to come together to honor and commemorate all veterans.

Boston's Veteran's Day celebrations pay tribute not only to those who have fought, but to the city's strong military history in its fight for freedom. Here are scenes from the 2016 Veteran's Day parade, which went down Boylston and Charles streets, up Tremont and straight to City Hall Plaza.
