No matter who you voted for or on which side of the aisle you stand, we all should thank our veterans for sacrificing their lives for our well-being. Veteran’s Day is just around the corner and we have some events you should consider. Even if you can’t make it just remember to thank our service men and women! Christmas is also right around the corner, so we have a little something for the holidays too. Check out the events after the jump.
