Veterans Day

Whether you’re old enough to recall November 11 as Armistice Day or young enough to know it only as National Veterans Day is not the point. What truly matters is that we take time from our busy lives to pay tribute to all the men and women who have served our country.

Please consider honoring all our veterans, living or dead, at a ceremony near you. I’ve listed some below. Be sure to check dates and times:

Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks (aka VA Hospital) Fayetteville. The annual Veterans Day Ceremony will be held on Friday, November 9, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. in the auditorium of Building 3. It will feature the National Anthem, presentation of the colors by U of A ROTC, patriotic music by Fayetteville High School Band, placing of the Memorial Wreath and a speaker. The public is encouraged to attend.
