Veterans Day Events and Memorials

Veterans Day Events and MemorialsVeterans Day is an important day of recognition in our country.

It is a day to pay tribute to the numerous men and women who staked their lives for our own and proudly served to protect our families and freedoms. It's a day to show gratitude for our nation's heroes.

While we are always grateful for their commitment, we are especially thankful for the opportunity to recognize them on this day.

Our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate team proudly salutes all veterans in our local communities and across the nation for the sacrifices they made during their years of service.

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."

John Fitzgerald Kennedy
