Fort Benning marks Veterans Day early

FORT, BENNING (WTVM) – Fort Benning will mark Veterans Day early with a brief observance on Nov. 7 at 10 a.m.

The observance will be conducted along with a basic training graduation of soldiers from the 198th Infantry Training Brigade.

In 1954, Congress amended the act that made Armistice Day a holiday and declared it Veterans Day to honor men and women who have served in the Armed Forces.

Veterans Day honors all veterans, and should not be confused with Memorial Day, which recognizes those who have died in service to our country.

For more information on the Veterans Day Observance, call (706) 545-6674.
