Veterans Day presents opportunity for thanks

“The holidays” are upon us, but as we wrap up Halloween and before we dive into Thanksgiving and Christmas, an important observance is coming up that we want to make sure you don’t forget.

Make plans now to observe Veterans Day next week.

Veterans Day falls Nov. 11 each year, and it is a day that has long been set aside to thank our heroes for their service and sacrifice.

Franklin County boasts a strong commitment to patriotism, with a number of veterans and service members in our midst. This is the perfect time to remember and appreciate the efforts that have been made throughout the centuries for the American freedoms we hold dear.

Let’s not forget the historic and patriotic significance of this one-day commemoration, “a celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good,” as expressed by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

To all veterans, we at the Franklin County Times salute and you and offer our gratitude. Thank you for our freedoms.
