Veterans Day Ceremony

Veterans Day

Have you ever wondered what the level of Human Sacrifice has been to establish and preserve The United States of America?

Family Tradition

Veterans Day is when we, honor all Veterans living and dead, fly our Flags and place flowers and flags on the graves of Military Personnel who have passed. Many volunteers and Volunteer Organizations march in patriotic parades. Patriotic speeches are made and declarations by The President and Heads of the Armed Services are also read. We all take time to remember the Human sacrifice it has taken to establish and maintain this great Nation of ours.
