Veterans Day is a national holiday honoring those who have served in United States Armed Forces. We can never thank them enough, but we will honor these great warriors with a ceremony starting at 11a.m. Friday, November 11th. That time is significant because it marks the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month when the guns fell silent on World War I.

Governor Matt Mead, American Legion Post 6 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1881 will convene at Post 6 at 2001 East Lincolnway for the ceremony. That will be followed with a lunch and then Post 6 will end the day with live music for all starting a 7 p.m. according to The Wyoming Tribune Eagle.

Some of our vets have returned with physical injuries, others with mental injuries that you cannot see. The Cheyenne VA is helping with programs for all who have answered our nation’s call.

 

If you appreciate your freedom, thank a vet. I do it all the time, but I keep to myself on thoughts that wonder what they could have gone through for all of us, Americans. I cannot even imagine in some cases.

 

Pictured above is my nephew Jesse and his daughter Gracie. He gave much more than we can see. He wanted to get back to his unit and serve more, but alas, that was not to be. I am still in awe of him and his incredible attitude, thanks to his father who was also a Marine. Oohra!

He is just one reason I will always stand for our National Anthem, everyone who has ever served completes my list. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
