This Saturday, Nov. 11th is Veterans Day. Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, that honors military veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I; major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. The United States previously observed Armistice Day. The U.S. holiday was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.
We at “On Lake Time” would like to thank those veterans who so bravely served and those who continue to serve our country.
Local Restaurants also have a wonderful way of thanking the veterans by offering them free meals and special discounts around Veterans Day. We have made a short list of some of our favorites. We urge you, however, to check with the restaurants before going as some have time restrictions and other qualifications (such as one free meal with the purchase of a meal, etc). Most will require proof of military service. Please check before venturing to the location.
