Veterans Day was celebrated this week. Although only federal, state and some county offices are closed on Nov. 11, we feel it is a day that should have the same status as Memorial Day or the Fourth of July. After all, our country should not be the great nation it is without the sacrifices made by our military veterans.
Unfortunately, that status has not been awarded to our veterans. In fact, although government employees — whether they have served in the Armed Forces nor not — have the day off, not many of our veterans do.
