Veterans Day – Message from the Mayor
We, at the City of Harrison, are humbled by the bravery and courage of the veterans in our community and in our country. Every year when we celebrate Veterans Day on November 11th, we are reminded to thank our family, friends, community members, and especially our very own officers and staff, who have served or are serving in all branches of the military. Our veterans and their families have made many sacrifices to keep our country safe.
We strongly encourage everyone to think of our veterans and thank them when you see them. We support and honor our veterans, not just on Veterans Day, but every day of the year.
