On this Veterans Day, we salute our Veterans and extend our gratitude for their service. They are our relatives, friends, neighbors and co-workers. These individuals committed to a cause larger than their own and accepted the challenge to defend our Nation.

Find Veterans Day 2015 ceremonies and events below. Don’t see your communities? List it in the comments and we will post it here.

Remembering Our Fallen

“Remembering Our Fallen” is a war memorial that consists of individual state memorials created to remember our country’s Fallen from The War on Terror since the Twin Towers fell on September 11, 2001. But unlike most war memorials made of brick and mortar, these are designed to travel so that more people can have the opportunity to remember our Fallen while being reminded of the tremendous cost of our freedom. Its legacy will be that these men and women will be remembered and their names will be spoken.

We ordered paninni sandwiches from paninni's they have several restaurants you can choose from, and they'll stop at grocery store for soda & chips, plates, etc. and deliver when you say.some ordered pizza, they were HUGE! Museum is A must! ;-)
