VFW Post 605: Remembering and Honoring our Veterans

In the United States, Veterans Day is a special day – a day to Remember, to Honor, and to Thank those who have selflessly gone whenever and wherever they were called. In Europe, this day is commemorated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, commemorating the end of the World War I. Post 605 is unique in the size of its footprint – although the Post is headquartered in France, its members span numerous countries and U.S States. As such, the Post had a global Veteran’s Day celebration.
