November 21 is the 25th anniversary of the initialing of the Dayton Peace Accord in the Hope Hotel ballroom at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. The 1995 negotiations were conducted by the U.S. Department of State and hosted by Wright Patterson Air Force Base from Oct. 31 until the initialing on Nov. 21, ending hostilities that had ravaged the Bosnian region with the loss of an estimated 100,000 lives.
