Today and every day we are grateful for all who have served and continue to help keep our country safe.  A little history, Veterans Day honors military veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces. The federal holiday coincides with Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which marks World War I. These observances reflect the end of significant hostilities at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 when the Armistice with Germany took effect. Initially, the United States observed Armistice Day as well. However, it evolved into the current Veterans Day in 1954.

Seven Gables is once again a proud Silver Sponsor of the 7th annual Orange Field of Valor. Field of Valor, located at Handy Park, displays 1,776 American flags to honor all Veterans and Active Duty Military personal. Visiting this is a great way to show your local veterans, who have selflessly served our country, that they are appreciated. If you don’t have plans this coming Veterans Day on November 11th or 12th, head down to pay tribute to those who have sacrificed so much in service of our freedom.
