This Thursday, November 11 is Veterans Day, but it was known as Armistice Day in the past. Armistice Day was a day the allies in World War II signed the Armistice agreement. Armistice is an agreement made by opposing sides in a war to stop fighting for a certain time, also known as a truce.
During World War I on November 11, 1918 at 5:45 a.m., an armistice was signed between the allied forces and Germany. This agreement was to go into effect at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. It was initially called for a 36-day ceasefire which was extended several times until the peace treaty was signed called the "Treaty of Versailles." The Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919.

Domestic violence is that ugly head that rears itself much too often. Domestic Violence Awareness Month concluded in October, but domestic violence awareness should be every day.
Julie Jewell is the executive director of Crisis Support Network (CSN). Jewell has been with CSN for approximately 2½ years. Prior to that, she worked for almost 25 years in child welfare, working for DSHS and DCYF. She has a Bachelor's degree in Behavioral Sciences. Jewell also has a background in mental health and counseling psychology in addition to her work in child welfare. She is a graduate of Willapa Valley HS.
Jewell was kind enough to offer her time to answer several questions by the Herald on educating people about the awareness of domestic violence, and hopefully, helping prevent it. Crisis Support Network provides 24-hour response to those experiencing domestic violence. The phone number is 800-435-7276.
