Geocache Description:


There is nothing hidden at the posted coordinates. This is the November edition of our monthly puzzle series for 2012. We thought it would be nice to honor 11/11 with a Veterans Day puzzle involving a code that's a real veteran. Solve the puzzle below to get the coordinates. You will be searching for a small lock-n-lock container with a logbook, pencil, and minor swag including an Ithaca magnet, a geocaching patch, and a bouncy ball to start. There is a GeoWoodstock pin for the FTF. Please rehide the cache as well or better than you found it. Night caching is not recommended.

From Wikiepedia: "Armistice Day (which overlaps with Remembrance Day) is on 11 November and commemorates the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918. While this official date to mark the end of the war reflects the ceasefire on the Western Front, hostilities continued in other regions, especially across the former Russian Empire and in parts of the old Ottoman Empire.

"The date was declared a national holiday in many allied nations, to commemorate those members of the armed forces who were killed during war. An exception is Italy, where the end of the war is commemorated on 4 November, the day of the Armistice of Villa Giusti. After World War II, the name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day in the United States and to Remembrance Day in the countries of the British Commonwealth of Nations. Armistice Day remains an official holiday in France and Belgium."
