Holyoke, Veteran’s Day
November 10, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
The United Veterans of Holyoke will honor the city’s veterans during a Nov. 10 ceremony at Holyoke High School. At 9 a.m., a Massachusetts National Guard helicopter crew will land at Roberts Field adjacent to the high school. The ceremony begins in the auditorium at 10 a.m.
The service usually occurs annually on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, at the War Memorial Building.
Nov. 11 recognizes the month, day and time the guns fell silent on the Western Front during World War I. The carnage left millions dead, destroyed cities, scorched countrysides and caused deep-seated resentments that led to World War II.
