On Veterans Day, Honor Those Who Have Served and Sacrificed for the Nation

JEFFERSON CITY – The Missouri Veterans Commission asks all Missourians on Veterans Day to thank and honor Veterans and Active Duty Military for their service and sacrifice to our nation.

Veterans Day is a day to celebrate those who gave and sacrificed to protect our freedoms, our people, our country, and our way of life. Remember those who stood in harm’s way for freedom is never free and their dedication and sacrifice should never be forgotten.

On November 11, the Missouri Veterans Commission encourages you to participate in your local community’s Veterans Day events. Make a difference in the life of a Veteran and show them you appreciate their service.

“We owe a great debt of gratitude to those who gave of their time and lives so we could live free. Veterans Day honors Veterans, Active Duty military, and their families by remembering what they did and what they stood for,” said Missouri Veterans Commission Executive Director Larry D. Kay.

The Missouri Veterans Commission, a state agency, operates seven State Veterans Homes, five State Veterans Cemeteries, and the Veterans Services Program. The Commission is committed to honoring and serving Missouri’s Veterans whose dedication and sacrifices have preserved our nation and its freedoms.
