Veterans Day is a holiday held every 11 November to honor all military personnel who have served in the U.S. armed forces. Veterans Day falls on a Saturday in 2017, with most states observing it on the preceding Friday.

Veterans Day activities and events

Four ideas on what to do in the U.S. on Veterans Day are:

  • Attend the Veterans Day commemoration at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, VA. You can watch the wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. You may also wish to respectfully walk through the cemetery, where over 40,000 veterans and their families are buried.
  • Watch America’s Parade, originally “the Veterans Day Parade,” in New York City. This is the largest Veterans Day parade in the country, bringing in around 25,000 attendees each year. It is held in Manhattan and has been running since 1919. There are also some other large parades to attend, including the biggest one west of the Mississippi River in Albany, Oregon, and there are many smaller parades as well.
  • Tour the memorials and monuments in Washington, D.C., that are related in some way to veterans. There are too many to list, but look for the DC War Memorial, which honors local World War I veterans, the National World War II Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
  • Spend the day, or part of it, volunteering at a local VA hospital or even just chatting with veterans who are there as patients. Many VAs will have special lunches on Veterans Day for the veterans, and they welcome volunteers to help prepare the meal.

With so many things happening in the world today, sometimes, it is hard to keep track of anything. Some people use #facebook to keep up with the news, or as some might call them #fakenews but it’s good to be able to differentiate between the real from the fake. 

We turn to CNN to keep up with current events, so feel free to click on their link to read up on 5 things happening today.

Also, nothing regarding the fact that today is 07-17-2017 and we just find it interesting. 

Life is precious, so enjoy the crap out of each day!
