Veterans Day is celebrated on the 11th day of the 11th month every year, in commemoration of the end of the so-called “War to End All Wars” (World War I) that ironically led to an even bigger conflict 20 years later (World War II).  Ever since, our armed forces have remained diligent in serving and protecting our nation and its citizens.  While the focus of Veteran’s Day is often on those who have served, it’s important that we also recognize those who are presently serving our country. Our Chamber recognizes and supports our area military installations throughout the year through our Unified Military Affairs Council (UMAC).
