Honor Veterans ToDay 11-11-11
It’s a day to honor all veterans. A national ceremony will be held today at 11 a.m. at Arlington National Cemetery. A wreath will be placed at Tomb of the Unknowns followed by a ceremony inside the Memorial Amphitheater.
Other events are scheduled including right here in Western New York. Some area businesses are saying thank you by offering things for free. They include Delta Sonic, Texas Roadhouse and Applebee’s. Leave us a note if you know of any others.
The wreath-laying ceremony is something to see. I am an Army vet. I was stationed at Fort Myer, VA. Arlington National Cemetery was right in our backyard. I use to watch the guards walk the mat at the Tomb of the Unknowns also known as Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. If you are ever in the Washington, DC area it’s a must see trip. Don’t forget your camera.
Thank you veterans for serving and making our country safe.
