We are proud and honored to be located in a small town, like Owatonna, MN. Veterans Day has such a huge presence in a small town. Businesses shut down to honor the fallen and their families with special dinners, parades and recognition ceremonies. Communities join together for an entire day to recognize lives that left this earth too soon, and lives still here because of their bravery and courage. The website for the US Department of Veterans Affairs (https://www.va.gov/opa/vetsday/), would like communities to spend the entire month of November celebrating our heroes. Please comment below and/or on this Facebook post to recognize a friend or loved one. Let’s show thanks all month long! Click the link to the VA website to view the calendar of events for November.
