Americans love, respect, and honor our troops all year round. However, each November, we set aside a special time to honor the sacrifices our brave military veterans have made. Originally called Armistice Day, Veterans Day falls on the anniversary of World War I. The holiday was renamed in 1954 to honor the service of all military members.
Irving's salute to our men and women in uniform on this day culminates into a wide variety of celebrations and honors, beginning with just offering our deep appreciation for their service. Over the next several days be sure to thank a veteran, and be proud that you're an American. In addition, we've listed below several different ways to commemorate Veterans Day here in Irving. As always, there are many more events going on this weekend, just take a peek at our full activity calendar at www.irvingtexas.com.
