On Nov. 11, across the county, Gwinnett schools and offices honored our veterans with patriotic displays and special events. Here are photos from just a few Veterans Day activities in the Archer, Brookwood, Discovery, Mill Creek, and North Gwinnett clusters.
Please thank our veterans for their service, but, also take a moment to honor them with the gift of listening, particularly our older veterans. The Veterans History Project (a project of the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress) "collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war." As you gather with family and friends over the next few months for holiday celebrations, consider how you can help your loved ones tell their stories.
