Lowcountry Veterans

In observation of Veterans Day today, our blog celebrates the selfless and profound individuals who’ve put their lives on the line to fight for our great nation.

Veterans Day traces back 1918, at the end of World War I when an armistice between the U.S. Allied nations and Germany took effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. For almost one-hundred years, this day has been spent celebrating the many people who’ve fought for our country. Lowcountry Veterans
