Consider This...Veteran's Day

(Source: KWES) (Source: KWES)
(KWES) -

One holiday that is often forgotten in the rush to Thanksgiving is Veterans Day. It's Saturday, Nov. 11.

We are able to celebrate all of our holidays because of Veterans and our armed forces on active duty around the world today.  

I want to challenge each of you to take time this weekend and look for opportunities to celebrate and thank our veterans and active duty military.  

There will be events around our area that you can attend or you can just simply walk up and thank a veteran.  

To view a list of events going on in the Basin, click here.  

Consider This, our veterans need our support every day of the year and many do not receive it.  

There is no better time than Veterans Day to rededicate ourselves to remembering their sacrifice on our behalf.
