Veterans Day Service Opportunities

WWI veteran Joseph Ambrose holds the flag that covered the casket of his son, killed in the Korean war, at a Viet Nam veteran's memorial service.

This Friday, the United States honors and thanks our military veterans.

Thank you veterans, troops and military families. Because of your sacrifices, we sleep in peace and safety, and we live in freedom. God bless you all!

Veteran’s Day History  November 11, 1918 officially ended World War 1. The US declared November 11 Armistice Day, dedicated to the cause of world peace and honoring WWI veterans. After WW2 and the Korean War, veterans groups urged congress to change the name to Veteran’s Day—a day to honor all who served our country and who continue to serve.
