Today we celebrate and give thanks to the men and women who have served in our country’s armed forces. Government offices will be closed today, but many businesses will stay open, and some even have special events planned for the veterans. Mary Case was in the Coast Guard at the end of World War II. She says Veteran’s Day is important because we need to acknowledge that these men and women were willing to put themselves in danger for the country. Staff Sergeant Rich Wirfs says Veteran’s Day brings this service to the public’s attention. KCII would like to personally thank the veteran’s in our community as well as across the country for their service.
