Veteran’s Day

Fort King George

5 sites to visit on Veterans Day, plus Nov. 11 events

Many of Georgia’s State Parks and Historic Sites are home to remnants of forts and earthworks dating back to the 17th century. At these special places, history doesn’t just live on plaques and markers; it literally comes alive during re-enactments held occasionally during the year.

We in the United States celebrated Veterans Day last week. From coast to coast, we enjoyed parades, tributes, the laying of wreaths, and at the Vietnam Veterans War Memorial. Nearly 60,000 names of veterans killed in that war were read, day and night, for four days.

Every Veteran deserves a hero’s sendoff

Famous American writer Joseph Campbell once wrote, “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” In my opinion, this is the perfect definition of all the veterans who have so courageously served our great nation.

Veteran’s Day… paying it forward


Harry Khachadourian was born in Palestine and his parents were from Turkey. Harry grew up as an Armenian Christian in a war-torn time and place. He spent many years moving from one “safe” place to another. His father and uncle owned a shoe factory in Palestine in the 1940’s and after the King David Hotel was bombed; Harry’s life began to resemble the movie “Exodus”.
