On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, all guns fell silent. This was Armistice Day, now know as Veterans Day. It is not a day to memorialize our men and women who have and do serve. It is a day to celebrate the contributions of our men and women who have served their country.
In Chapel Hill we get out of the post and into the community to wave the flag and to share the story of Veterans Day. How about you?
For a list of events that we are attending this year, with times and dates, click here: Veterans Day Activities 2017
Come join us and any of the events. Wear your patriotic attire. Share your stories with others. You are part of the 1% who are serving their country!
