You have tolled the bells in the past.
Please join us again in 2022
to honor all those who served and sacrificed

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

The Doughboy Foundation has since promoted it as an annual remembrance of those who served in WWI and the11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, when the guns fell silent, and bells tolled on the Western Front in 1918.
