WLOX Editorial: Honor our veterans

As we approach Veterans Day 2013, we hope you will take the time to honor our Military Veterans. The day was originally called Armistice Day as we marked the end of the Great War, World War I. Later it became Veterans Day and eventually a federal holiday.

The official Veterans Day is Monday, but there's The Gulf Coast Veterans parade Saturday at 11am. It's in downtown Biloxi with lots of bands, and military units and veterans groups proudly parading down the streets of Biloxi.

What better way to show your appreciation than to line the streets and cheer those who worn the uniform and served this country and kept us safe here at home? And to our veterans, we thank you for your service.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
