Members of the Alaska Peace Center and Veterans for Peace gathered at 11 a.m. Thursday in Veteran's Memorial Park, 700 Cushman St., to ring bells recognizing Armistice Day, which coincides with Veterans Day. Armistice Day, a national holiday in France, recognizes the cessation of World War I whereas Veterans Day honors military members who have served in the U.S. armed forces. Festival Fairbanks, which usually hosts a Veterans Day ceremony, produced a televised documentary this year that aired on KATN Channel 2, KXDF Channel 13 and on KTVF Channel 11. “A Veterans Day TV Special” will be available for viewing on Festival Fairbanks’ YouTube channel at after it airs.
