Meals on Wheels of Syracuse celebrates Veterans Day, as we honor our veterans. Many of our meal recipients, volunteers, board members, friends and supporters are veterans. We thank all veterans for their service.
Veterans Day continues to be observed on November 11, regardless of what day of the week on which it falls. The restoration of the observance of Veterans Day to November 11 not only preserves the historical significance of the date, but helps focus attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
