Veterans Day celebrates and honors America’s veterans for their patriotism and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. It is also a day dedicated to the cause of world peace.
On this Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, take a moment to visit one of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board’s (MPRB) dedicated memorial parks that honor Minnesota and Hennepin County veterans from WWI and WWII. Each memorial site features a monument and plaques dedicated to fallen soldiers, and offer a peaceful setting to commemorate lost loved ones.
