Monday, November 11th is a day we take to celebrate the men and women who have served and given their lives for our freedom.    

If you are a veteran or someone in your family is, here are a number of events you can take part in today.

  • A Veterans Day Ceremony with United Patriotic Bodies will be held at Fargo Civic Center at 11 a.m.
  • Gov. Doug Burgum will pay tribute to military veterans at the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck at 10 a.m.
  • Gov. Tim Walz will speak at the Official State of Minnesota Veterans Day Program which is also scheduled for 10 a.m. in Inver Grove Heights.
  • Many restaurants are celebrating veterans by offering free menu items on Monday.

National parks statewide are waiving their entrance fees for the day, and if you drive over the Memorial Bridge, you will see the nine flags that were hung by the Bismarck AMVETS for the occasion.

Happy Veterans Day!
