There are plenty of veterans today, men and women, who remember being told not to wear their uniforms off base or off post because it might generate negative reactions among the civilian population. Give thanks that throughout our nation's history, starting with the Revolutionary War and continuing throughout the 241 years since, that your freedoms have been defended and protected by America's courageous sons and daughters, of whom more than 665,000 have given their lives, so that you might continue to enjoy the freedoms that many now take for granted.
Veterans Day used to be called Armistice Day. They did all this with pride knowing their service was important.
These are the best and most useful ways to thank our veterans and to mark November 11, the day that honors them.
The annual WIU Veterans and Service Members tribute ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 10 at the Sherman Hall flagpole.
I would like to thank all veterans for their dedication and service to our country. Veterans are men and women who served in any of the 5 branches of the United States Military during either war or peacetime.
Any member of the military forces or veteran can enter any of Colorado's 41 state parks free of charge, along with his or her companions in the same vehicle, according to a CPW press release. Soon thereafter, however, war broke out again in Europe, drawing the USA into World War II. The same applies to Veterans who are now serving today, and combined, these Veterans represent all that is best about America. For that, we salute them. This is the 49th Austin Honor Flight to date, and the ninth this year.
