Veterans Day will be celebrated Monday across Highlands County, giving us an opportunity to pause and recognize the contributions of those who have served in the armed forces, past and present.

This day was originally called Armistice Day, made a federal holiday in 1938 as a way to recognize those who served in World War I. It commemorates Nov. 11, 1918, at 11 a.m., when Germany surrendered to Allied forces.
