Trinity Woods Honors Our Heroes!

Veterans Day is a time to honor those who served, those who still serve and especially those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms in our country’s wars. Military veterans have a special place in the American heart and definitely the hearts of the Trinity Woods community.

“Armistice Day” was started in 1919 as a way to commemorate the end of World War I. In 1928, Congress passed a resolution to make an annual observance. November 11 became the official date for the observance and a National Holiday in 1938. In 1954, the holiday officially became Veterans Day to celebrate the service of all veterans living and dead.

Thanking veterans for all they do and have done is a way to express our collective gratitude. The sacrifices they made deserve our recognition. America’s veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission to serve our country and it is never too late to celebrate their dedication and service. As Veterans Day approaches a quote by George S. Patton Jr. comes to mind. “It is foolish and wrong
to mourn the men who died. Rather, we should thank God that such men lived.”

Each year Trinity Woods takes time to celebrate and thank these very special people, both men and women who have served, with a special program. We encourage you to attend this annual service. This year’s service will be held Friday, November 11 at 2:00 p.m. in the Fleming Center.
