INTERVIEW: "What Veterans Day Means to Me" - 11.11.20
Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day, a holiday created at the end of World War I to remember those who fought in “the war to end all wars” on the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month.
Siouxland Public Media reached out to a few members of our local community to hear about their service and sacrifice as veterans and military family members.
We thank Dan “Pops” Verbeski for his service, Sarah Petersen of Support Siouxland Soldiers and Rachael Chapple who is also a military wife. Her husband, Brandon, is on his second year-long deployment to the Middle East in the past three-and-a-half years.
