Veterans Day 2011

Veteran's Day 2011

>>>From the National Organization:
Since 1919, Veterans Day has stood as an opportunity for the United States, as both a nation and its citizens, to pause and honor American veterans of all wars.

This year, many events and special promotions have been planned to do just that. The American Legion has a Veterans Day page on its national website dedicated to these events and promotions for easy access and bookmarking by Legionnaires and others. The Veterans Day page includes:

  • News about observances in Washington at which the Legion will have a presence.
  • Access to the yearly ceremony held by USAA, the Legion’s preferred provider of financial services.
  • Links to everything from Legion materials that posts can use to hold their own observances in their communities, to discounts and free offers from restaurants and companies eager to do their part to participate.
