Honor our veterans today and every day

A nice crowd braved light drizzle on a chilly morning and gathered for Veterans Day ceremonies at the Salina / Saline County War Memorial in Sunset Park.

" American Legion Post 74 observes Veterans Day with a ceremony featuring the Charlottesville High School Band and speakers at 11 the Sprint Pavilion on the Downtown Mall". While Presidential proclamations were issued for it starting in 1919, Armistice Day didn't become a national holiday until 1938.

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, World War I came to an end.

Here's how celebrities marked Veterans Day.

In the middle of the 20th century, members of Congress and President Eisenhower understood that every veteran deserves to be recognized for his or her service.

World War I was often referred to as the "war to end all wars", and World War II proved how naïve that declaration was. "Soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and the Coast Guard have all given their time, and many times their lives, to protect our freedoms".

In Florence, the community gathers for several events to thank veterans and honor their service.

The next development in the story of Veterans Day unfolded in 1968, when Congress passed the Uniform Holidays Bill, which sought to ensure three-day weekends for federal employees-and encourage tourism and travel-by celebrating four national holidays (Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Columbus Day) on Mondays. In this 99th year of commemoration, the Department of Veterans Affairs is broadening that tradition of observance and appreciation to include both Veterans and Military Families for the entire month of November.

"Love and gratitude to our veterans on [Veterans Day]".

On June 4, 1926, Congress passed a resolution that the "recurring anniversary of [November 11, 1918] should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises created to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations", and that the president should issue an annual proclamation calling for the observance of Armistice Day. The moment usually begins at 11 a.m. and continues for two minutes in honor of deceased veterans.

"Our veterans have bravely and proudly carried the burden of defending this country by their honorable service during war and peacetime".

The ceremony will be held November 11 at 11 Veterans Memorial on Maple Street. With approximately 1700 names of local veterans, dating back to the Civil War and through to the present, it is a tangible way to see how many veterans, right here, we have to thank for their service.
