Have you ever wondered why Veterans Day is such an important holiday?

MSU continued to take great pride in recognizing Veterans Day, Friday, Nov. 10, as a celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

For example, in the Vietnam War, approximately 58,220 Americans passed away. Unfortunately, the peace after that war only lasted 2 decades, and numerous lessons from The Great War have been lost.

On Nov. 11, Florence recognized those who served in the USA military with multiple events in celebration of Veterans Day.

Congress decided in 1938 to honor all veterans on the day that the Armistice was signed on November 11, 1918.

It was called the, "Great War to end all Wars". The Armistice was signed at " the 11th hour of the 11th day in the 11th month.

Veterans Day honors all veterans. I hope you appreciate it just as much as I do.
