The observance and ceremony honors and thanks military veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces. In the United States, the meaning of Veterans Day is slightly different from that of other observances in that ours honors all American veterans, living and dead. Post 117 Legionnaire plans to honor a veteran who passed on to “Post Everlasting” with a special ceremony that includes the stacking of rifles, placement of an American Legion cap, and a flag raising ceremony.
