Veterans Day in Miami
5 Things to Do
By Analiz Guzman, Nov., 2019
Word to Know:
Veteran: (noun) 1. A person who has had long experience in a particular field.
2. A person who has served in the military, a retired soldier.
Every year on November 11th, Americans nationwide gather together to honor and thank the brave military soldiers who have served the United States Armed Forces in all wars. This holiday is also known as Armistice Day. We honor our courageous retired soldiers with a long, 3-day weekend filled with picnics, barbecues, church services, parades and more! In many places, the American flag is hung at half mast as a display of respect and it is common for a moment of silence to take place at 11 AM.
Our International F1 Visa Students who our blessed enough to study and live abroad in Miami will be celebrating Veterans Day weekend like true Americans. This city offers so much to do!
