Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day ... the day we, as American Citizens, honor all men & women who have selflessly served our great country. Their sacrifices and bravery have been honored since 1938, when legislation passed "Armistice Day". This day was to celebrate the servicemen of World War 1 who had "dedicated themselves to the cause of world peace". However, in 1954, Armistice Day was changed to Veterans Day to celebrate and honor all individuals who served in ALL wars or during peacetime.

There's a number of Community Ceremonies that you can attend. The City of Rowlett will have a Veterans Day Ceremony at Veterans Park on Main Street from 4:30 pm.   City of Rowlett

Please take a moment to give a heartfelt THANK YOU to all the servicemen & women you know who dedicated their time to serve our country.
