This day is a day of remembrance. A day to remember the men and women who have valiantly served this great nation since our Founding Fathers broke the bonds of a tyrannical King and declared that these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States.
On this day we remember those who have fallen. We remember those who have and continue to stand guard. We remember and we honor those young men and women who selfishly pledged their lives to defend this grand experiment in democracy.
Our nation and indeed the world would be unrecognizable if not for them. Throughout history our American hero’s have been liberators and defenders of freedom where tyranny and oppression reign.
They are our wives and husbands. Our sons and daughters. Our fathers and mothers. Our bothers and sisters. On this day we stand united to say thank you to all who have worn the uniform of the United States. A grateful nation thanks you for your service. God bless you… and may God continue to bless these United States.
In Fairbanks, join us at the Westmark Hotel from 11:00 – 12:30 for a Veterans Day event to honor our American Military including those imprisoned or missing in action. The U.S. Army Denali Brass Quintet will be on hand to perform at 10:30 and the Arctic Groove Orchestra will perform a Veterans Day Concert at West Valley High School at 7:00PM. Everyone is welcome!
