Many veterans and supporters gathered around the Pettis County Courthouse for the Veterans Day Ceremony today (Nov. 11). The ceremony is traditionally done on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month nationwide. This was originally Armistice Day and is now known as Veterans Day.
Everyone around here is probably well aware that today is a very important day. Veterans Day isn't something that a lot of us can take lightly. We have brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandmothers, grandfathers, and friends who have served in one way or another or are still serving today. So I think a lot of us are just looking for different ways to say thank you.
