This Veterans Day, we have great reason to thank our many veterans and reflect on the immeasurable value of their service.
Celebrated every year on Nov. 11, what we now know as Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day, for the day the Treaty of Versailles was signed to end World War I.
Veterans were honored with a parade filled with bands, scouts, first responders, antique cars, a queen and of course, military heroes from World War II to the War on Terror in Delaware on Sunday. More events are planned throughout Central Ohio on Monday.
On Monday, Veterans Day will be celebrated across the United States. The holiday, originally named Armistice Day, marked the end of fighting in World War I when the Allies and the German Empire declared a cease-fire.
