Today we celebrate November 11th as Veterans Day. It began in 1919 as Armistice Day to celebrate the first anniversary of the end of World War I. On Nov. 11, 1918, the Greeley Tribune had two stories ready for publication. When the Associated Press telephone rang with the news that Armistice was signed at 1:30 AM, the night editor moved quickly to make the change for the big story. Greeley’s night police officer was pressed into service to alert the sugar factory and other plants in Greeley and within minutes, whistles, sirens, and bells woke Greeley residents. The telephone operator on duty began to call people to let them know the good news and all noise making devices available were pressed into service, drums, horns, bells, cymbals, and even dishpans.
