Veteran’s Day occurs every November 11th in the United States. President Gerald Ford passed the bill to have the holiday recognized on this date due to its historical significance. In Europe, Great Britain and Commonwealth countries, there is 2 minutes of silence at 11 AM every November 11th.
On behalf of Lyons, we thank the heroes, families, and friends of those who fought for our freedom today.
