MFISD School programs to honor veterans Nov. 10-13

This year, Veterans Day, a national holiday celebrated each Nov. 11, falls on a Saturday.

To honor local veterans while students are in school, Marble Falls ISD campuses have scheduled special Veterans Day celebrations this Friday, Nov. 10

The Veterans Day celebrations help deepen students’ civic understanding that Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor all those who served honorably in the United States Military — both in wartime or peacetime.

Veterans Day is largely intended to thank living veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served—not only those who died — have sacrificed and done their duty.
