A HUGE shout out goes to all military service members for your service in defending our great nation. We appreciate you, your service and your and your families sacrifices.
Honoring our Veteran's, retirees and Active Duty Service members on Veteran's Day is very important because supporting our service members is something that all American's should be doing, no matter if they agree with the politics of it or not. Area businesses are honoring them and here are a few of them.
If you know of any others that I have not mentioned here, please feel free to let us know about it...thanks!
