City Island and communities all around this great country are honoring the brave men and women who have served this wonderful nation in times of war and peace. Through public ceremonies, parades, and celebrations or private prayers and reflection, Americans will make known their gratitude to those who have sacrificed so much for our country.

This is also a reminder that honoring our veterans shouldn't be limited to just once. The enormous sacrifice they and their families make deserves to be recognized throughout the year.
