Honoring Our Veterans

Today we celebrate Veteran’s Day, a day to honor the men and women who fight for our country and so that we may live in freedom. Some of these men and women never come home, making the ultimate sacrifice. They, and their families, deserve our respect and to be honored. As our country continues to be at war, and thousands of brave men and women risk their lives every day, we must thank them for their service and pray for their safe return home.
The City of Miami has been honored to host The Moving Wall, the half-size replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country for more than twenty years. The Wall is a project by a group of veterans who have made it possible for thousands of people who cannot travel to our nation’s capital to be able to experience this solemn memorial to our fallen warriors. The Wall will close today at 5:30 pm.
