On Veterans Day: A look at the past and present

Yesterday marked the 93rd Veterans Day since the holiday’s enactment in 1919. And, depending on where you work or go to school, observations for the important day are still underway at this moment.

Here the author, Melinda L. Pash, takes us back to the beginnings of her book (it all started at a high school prom…) and shows us the unwavering support the older generation of soldiers have for today’s troops.
