Uncle Sam wants you to toll the bells

Join us for Bells of Peace 2021

Toll “Bells of Peace” on 11/11 at 11am local time, and honor all those who served and sacrificed in WWI.

Bells of Peace is a U.S. national bell tolling remembrance that was created in collaboration with the Society of the Honor Guard, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (SHGTUS) to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the World War I Armistice, November 11, 2018.

The Doughboy Foundation has since promoted Bells of Peace as an annual remembrance of those who served in WWI and of the moment when the guns fell silent, and bells tolled in Europe… on the 11th day of the 11th month, at the 11th hour in 1918.

“Here Rests in Honored Glory…”

2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the interment ceremonies officiated by President Warren G. Harding when an unknown soldier from WWI was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery establishing the hallowed Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on November 11, 1921.

This year as we toll the Bells of Peace at 11am local on 11/11, we will also reflect on this solemn event triggered by America’s participation in WWI.
