Veterans Day is a holiday held every 11 November to honor all military personnel who have served in the U.S. armed forces. Veterans Day was originally called “Armistice Day,” and the date was chosen to commemorate the signing of the armistice with Germany that ended hostilities during World War I. The American Legion Post 43 in La Grande will be holding their annual Veterans Day Parade on Monday. The parade will begin at 11 and will run downtown Adams Avenue. The Grand Marshall is Fred Alexis.
