Veteran's Day is Friday, November 11, 2016 Posted on 30 Oct 19:11
Dating back to the early 20th century, this holiday is one of the most reverent days in the United States. Veterans Day is especially important now, due to the declining number of living veterans from World War I. Many Americans have grandparents who remember the end of the Great War, but few have great grandparents who were actually old enough to serve in the war.
Although the holiday originated from World War I, it is now celebrated to include all veterans of wars, conflicts, and active duty service. In the United States, the armed services community is very tight, and the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air force, National Guard and reserves of the US have been very important in shaping the country as well as the entire world.
If you have a loved one who is buried at Fort Snelling Cemetery, please contact us to place beautiful flowers in remembrance of your Vet. It would be our honor to honor them. We will send you a photo once we have placed the flowers. We also have beautiful wreaths for the cold Minnesota holiday winter, and can you can also order flowers for Valentines Day, Memorial Day, Birthday, Anniversaries or any other special day.
