Honor Our Veterans

Friday, November 11, 2016

Today we honor those who have worn the uniform in service to our country as we commemorate Veterans Day. Coast Guard units across the nation will hold events to honor living veterans as well as remember those who have crossed the bar. Whether it is visiting a local hospital or running a 5k to support wounded warrior organizations, pause and take a moment to honor those who have served. Veterans Day was established as Armistice Day in 1919 to commemorate the Allied victory and honor the heroism of service members killed during World War I. Veterans Day is now a time to remember all those who have answered the call of duty to protect and preserve the promise of this great Nation.

Thank you to all Coast Guardsmen and veterans from all U.S. Armed Services for your selfless service protecting our freedoms and your service to our Nation.

Semper Paratus.

Thank You!

    Our Flotilla in Lexington KY is very active in honoring our Nation’s heroes both on Veterans Day and Memorial Day at Camp Nelson National Cemetery. Suggestion – visit the Director of your local National Cemetery and offer to assit in planning and organizing their ceremonies. It has been a wonderfully appreciated addition to our mission. They need the help and your members will quickly feel appreciated.

Please send anything you’d like us to broadcast up the chain fso-pa, so-pa, dso-pa and dvc-aw. The moe information the better. Don’t worry about the editing of the story we can do that for you we just need the facts, figures, and photos! Good Luck!
