Veterans Day, a U.S. federal holiday, is a time to honor and thank
those who are serving or have served in the military and are still
with us.

Note that Veterans Day (originally known as Armistice Day) is different than Memorial Day, which is a day to reflect and remember those who lost their lives in service to their country.

On Veterans Day, think about how you can show a veteran extra appreciation. Attend a Veterans Day parade or event in your area. Ask a veteran about their service and really listen. Visit a VA hospital. Display the flag to salute our veterans!

Elks pledge “So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.” The Elks National Veterans Service Commission takes that pledge one step further, and promises service to our nation’s veterans and military members, with a special focus on service to those in need.

Are you interested in providing direct service to veterans, and making a difference in your community?  Consider joining the Elks – come down and meet us at Watchung Hills Elks Lodge #885 – click here for our contact information and a map.
