Veterans Day is the day we officially thank our veterans for the service and sacrifice they've made on our behalf. Without their bravery and dedication, we could not enjoy the safety, security, and freedom that we do.
On Veterans Day, I think of my little sister, who just returned home from her second tour in Iraq. It's easy to forget about the significance of her work. Some of that is because she's not allowed to talk about it, but mostly, it's because military service is her job and she never asks for special recognition for doing her job. That's the case with most active duty and veteran soldiers.They do what they do because keeping us safe is their job.
Today, it's my duty to thank my little sister for her service and sacrifice. On Veterans Day, it's our duty to thank all veterans for what they do for us each and every day.
The Festival theme is "Reaching Back Moving Forward," highlighting the African-American experience from the Civil War era to the celebration of Juneteenth and current events in Alexandria. The festival will be held rain or shine.
