Tony Sarbanes, a Chairman on the Wicomico County War Memorial Committee said, "You don't know how much that means to somebody who served in the military, varying types of service, but they're recognized".

"Today we get to celebrate those who have served and answered their nation's call to war, as the case may be, and to really honor the service of those who have served in peacetime and in war", said Lt. Col Shawn Dodge, head of the East Tennessee State University ROTC program.

All major political parties have promised to increase borrowing in the general election campaign. At Aa2, Britain is on the same level as France but below Germany's AAA rating by Moody's.

The number 11 is actually very important for Veterans day as its a reference to the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when World War 1 formally ended, so changing it to October didn't go over well. "In 1926, Congress resolved to officially call November 11 Armistice Day". Lawmakers believed that veterans of World War II and the Korean Conflict deserved their own day of remembrance.

We're told this ceremony means a lot to the veterans who attend because its not every day that they get to come together and be honored for their service. A patriotic musical prelude provided by the Indiana National Guard's 38th Division Band begins at 10:30 a.m.
