A Veteran Tells His Story in Sitka

At a special presentation commemorating Veteran’s Day at the Sitka Chamber of Commerce yesterday (Wednesday), members were asked if they knew the difference between Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day. Veteran’s Day, as chamber director Sheila Finkenbinder noted, was originally known as Armistice Day, to commemorate the end of World War I – the “war to end all wars.” Veteran’s Day may seem like a strange mid-week holiday to many people, but to others it has a powerful meaning.
