Veterans Day - a day of honor, to honor

Vietnam War veterans gathered Wednesday to receive pins for their service Vietnam War veterans gathered Wednesday to receive pins for their service

It seems like a long time ago - although it really wasn't - that active duty members of the military and veterans weren't exactly welcome in the country they served. VFW Post 7507's color guard will parade and present the colors to start and end the ceremony.

Veterans Day is the official United States holiday that coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also marks the anniversary of the end of World War I. As the National Commander of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, a unique group of Veterans, consisting exclusively of those who were wounded by the enemies of the United States on the battlefield or by an act of global terrorism, I take great pride in saluting the more than 22 million men and women who laid their lives on the line in loyal and valiant service to this great nation.

The Veterans Day date commemorates the armistice that ended World War I on November 11, 1918.

Twice a year, Honor Flight Syracuse fills a charter flight to Washington, with a simple, but increasingly urgent goal: to help every single veteran who's willing and able visit the national memorials dedicated to their sacrifice.

"Colorado Parks and Wildlife is proud to thank our veterans and military members by offering free admission to our state parks in honor of Veterans Day", said CPW Director Bob Broscheid. "With a spirit of pride and gratitude, we honor and remember our veterans today".

Attendees are encouraged to wear patriotic clothing such as Red Shirt Friday shirts.

Chairs and limited shade will be provided by the VFW.
