During the month of November, observances to honor our nation’s Veterans take place throughout America. The meaning of these observances is dear to those who have donned the military uniforms of our nation, as well as the families who have supported them. Veterans Day commemorates all those who have served to defend the land of the free and for those who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our country and the preservation of freedom.
