FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- On the 11th hour of the 11th day of November in 1918, the Armistice was signed, ending World War I.
A century later, members of the community came together to remember local heroes who served and died in "The War to End all Wars."
They did it with the World War I Memorial Grove 100 year rededication.
They gathered near the 125 trees planted in memory of 125 local soldiers, sailors, and nurses who gave their lives in WWI.
"100 years ago when this war ended, it was important for the community at that time to recognize these 125, and we done that again today, so it means a lot,” Gary Perkey of the Warrior Breed Motorcycle Club said.
Officials rededicated the Memorial Grove before unveiling a new plaque honoring the 125 local heroes.
