Austin Area Events Honoring Veterans Day 2022


You probably know that Veterans Day happens every year on November 11, but did you know that it happens on the anniversary of the end of World War I? While Memorial Day honors those that have died while in military service, Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.

Whether you or a loved one have served or you just want to honor the thousands of U.S. military veterans in our area, there are events where you can do just that throughout Central Texas.
