Each year, Americans set aside Nov. 11 to honor the veterans who have served in the U.S. Armed Services, past and present, in peacetime and in war.


In Detroit Lakes, the local American Legion and VFW posts take turns hosting the program, according to Post 15 Legion Commander Bud Larson. This year is the Legion's turn.

The festivities will begin Saturday, Nov. 11, at 10:30 a.m. in Oak Grove Cemetery, where there will be a memorial for all deceased veterans.
