WLOX Editorial: Thank our veterans for their service

The 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month each year is the official observance of Veterans Day. Tuesday, November 11, 2014, will be the 96th observance of what was Armistice Day marking the end of World War I and what is now Veterans Day.

South Mississippi is rich with military veterans. We hope you will take the opportunity to thank our veterans for their service.

The Gulf Coast Veterans Parade will be held this Saturday at 11 a.m. in downtown Biloxi. Another parade will be held Sunday at 1 p.m. in Long Beach.

You can show your support for those who have worn the uniform and served our country by lining the streets and cheering those who helped in keeping us safe here at home.

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