Highlighted Site of the Week – The United States Department of Veterans Affairs
In honor of Veterans Day tomorrow, our Highlighted Site of the Week is the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. On the site, you can find information about the National Ceremony, as well as regional observances.
They also offer a link to the Library of Congress “Veterans History Project,” which collects and preserves personal recollections of our nation’s veterans.
As we take time to honor our military veterans, I thought you might enjoy a history of Veterans Day from the U.S. House of Representatives Office of the Clerk website, and President Barack Obama’s Veterans Day 2011 Proclamation.
For up-to-date information, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has an official Twitter account and Facebook.
