Churches such as St. Paul's Anglican in Charlottetown will be participating in Sunday's memorial

Norm Harvey, who co-ordinated Bells of Peace with the legion, said the bells at various churches in the city will ring 100 times to mark the landmark anniversary.

More than 71,000 soldiers from Arkansas served during World War I and about 2,100 died from wounds or illnesses.

At 11 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, exactly 100 after the end of fighting on the Western Front in World War I, bells across the United States will ring together as part of Bells of Peace.

"In a world of increased globalization, radicalization and national tensions, it's clear that the lessons of the Great War endure to this day", Naylor said in a statement. To mark this anniversary, the United States WWI Centennial Commission is calling on Americans across the nation to toll bells at 11 a.m. on November 11, in remembrance of those who served in WWI. Some 4.7 million Americans stepped forward to serve in uniform during the war, two million of them were deployed overseas to fight, and 116,516 of them never made it home alive.

The U.S. World War One Centennial Commission was established by Congress in 2013 to provide education programs, public outreach, and commemorative events regarding the American involvement in that war.

The name was changed to Veterans Day in 1978 as the day when all veterans are honored.

People can also participate on their own by going to the WWI commission's website and downloading the Bells of Peace app. Hutchinson formed the committee to recognize the state's contributions to the war.
