Veterans Day is a very special day for the brave men and women that protected our country, rights, families, and freedoms. Every veteran is part of a long, unbroken line of achievement and honor.
On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, in the 11th month people across America will pause to remember the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, and Coast Guardsmen that served this great country. Because of veterans, America remains the land of opportunity and freedom.
The North Lake Community includes veterans that served for a variety of reasons. Some were drafted and others, felt a duty to defend their country, volunteered.
This year, in observance of Veterans Day, we will participate in the Dallas Veterans Day Parade on Friday, November 9. We will also co-host a Veterans Day Gala at UNT-Dallas on Saturday, November 11 at 7 p.m. in the Founders Hall 138. The Gala is free for veterans and their guests.
Let’s thank our veterans for their contributions to our college, community, state, nation and the world.
