Veterans Day Celebration
Honoring veterans in the heartland.
several days celebration of our freedom. 
An Emporia citizen in 1953 had the idea to celebrate all veterans on November 11, rather  than just those who fought in World War I. November 11 had been called Armistice Day to celebrate the end of World War I, but  Mr. Al King, a shoe store owner in Emporia , having a great respect for our military set out to honor all veterans and called it Veteran’s Day and so it has become a very special day when we honor all our military who have served our beloved country.
