Veterans Day is a day American citizens look back and appreciate those who served in war and fought for their country. Many, in all of the years and decades, have served in the American military. Out of all the individuals who have served many have died while many have survived, but all in all for most veterans, the day is incredibly meaningful.

For veterans, this day means they get to look back and receive recognition and  appreciation for what they did for the country.

“It means honoring those brave Americans who are still alive that have served in a branch of the military. It means honoring my fellow brothers and sisters in arms, past and present,“Lovejoy technology director and veteran, Joe Sofia,  said.

All veterans who have previously served have eventful memories. Whether good or bad they have many memories that they will hold onto dearly forever.

“(Favorite part of being in service) Seeing my wife for the first time, she was also in the Army.  I was so thrown back by how beautiful she was in her BDU’s,” Sofia said.

Veterans Day is impactful in many ways to veterans.

“It helps me remember that there are new veterans that are getting out of the military even today, that need the same warm welcome that I received when I was discharged,” Sofia said.

After everything all previous and current veterans have done, some in the US don’t fully take time to respect it, although many do appreciate the special day.

“Freedom isn’t free, and it takes a special person to deny themselves and think about a bigger cause. People in this nation have been making this type of sacrifice for over 200 years. I recommend the joining the military to anyone. It changed my life, in a very good way,” Sofia said.
