Commemorating Veterans Day
Wednesday, November 11, 2020 will mark the 101st anniversary of Armistice Day. Amended in 1938 and renamed to Veterans Day so it includes all who have served in the United States Armed Forces, Veterans Day serves as a day of reflection and recognition. The Nixon Library Education and Public Programs Team hopes to provide a brief history of this National Holiday, information about how the policies of President Nixon's administration supported Veterans and to give you the opportunity to participate in four socially distanced, virtual events produced for and by our local community.
