I have always been of the opinion that Veterans Day doesn't get as much attention as it deserves. Sure, some folks are off of work and students in some districts are out of school, but it's still somewhat under-celebrated. And I find that sad because if you live in the United States, your life and liberty has been directly impacted by a veteran. Odds are good that you actually know or have known a veteran.
With that in mind, I have compiled a list of some of the Veterans Day events going on around the Memphis area. And if you can't attend one of these events, there are plenty of other ways to honor a veteran--including a simple "thank you."
If you know of a Veterans Day event that I missed, please let me know by sending me an email.
