Veterans Day 2018 marks 99 years of official celebration of our country’s heroes. The day was first celebrated as Armistice Day in 1919—commemorating the end of World War I a year earlier. Today, it celebrates all of our brave veterans—no matter when or where they served—for their hard work and sacrifice.
If you’re looking for a great way to pay tribute to these brave men and women, consider attending one or more of the great Texas veterans events listed below.
