Honoring our Veterans

Patriotic African American Revolutionary War Soldiers

Veterans Day is an opportunity each year to reflect on the freedoms we cherish and the men and women whose service has made them possible.

This is a day that we honor military veterans who served in the Armed Forces of the United States (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marie Corps and the Coast Guard), and it gives us an opportunity to thank them (and their families) for their service and their sacrifices.

And, if you are descended from a veteran of the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, Korean War and/or the Vietnam War please make sure that you share with a young person the historic context of each of those wars with the challenges we face world wide today
