Happy Veterans Day! A Look at Atlanta’s Salute to the Troops
Before Veterans Day as we know it, Americans celebrated Armistice Day on Nov. 11 each year to mark the end of World War I. The celebrations started in 1919, and it wasn’t until 1954, 16 years after the date was designated a national holiday by congress, that President Eisenhower changed its name from Armistice Day to Veterans Day. From 1919 until now, though, the sentiment behind Veterans Day has remained the same. It’s a date to thank and honor the soldiers, living and dead, who have served or are serving our country and keeping us safe. Here at Kevin Patrick Law, we couldn’t be more grateful for the men and women in uniform who fight for America and American values every day. Celebrations in honor of our troops — and the 100th anniversary of Veterans Day! — will take place across Atlanta in early November. On Nov. 9, the Atlanta Veterans Day parade will fill downtown Atlanta beginning at 11:11 a.m., traversing Peachtree Street, Baker Street, and Marietta Street, and finishing at its intersection with Centennial Olympic Park Drive. This year’s Grand Marshall will be Major General Thomas M. Carden Jr., adjutant general of the Georgia Department of Defense.
ceremony will start at 11 a.m. and include a keynote address, national anthem performance, and color presentation. Afterward, attendees can enter the Center to learn about its Veterans History Project. Since its launch in 1999, it has collected interviews with more than 600 veterans.
To any veterans reading, thank you for your service! We can’t begin to tell you how grateful we are for all you do.
On Veterans Day itself, the honors will continue at Veterans Park with a commemoration by the Atlanta History Center. The
The Best Leftover Turkey Sandwich
Thanksgiving may be held on Thursday, but the food often lasts at least through the weekend. To make the best use of the excess, grill up some killer turkey sandwiches.
Ingredients • 2 slices sourdough bread
• 3 tbsp leftover cranberry sauce • 1/3 cup leftover dressing or stuffing • 2 tbsp leftover gravy • 1 tbsp butter, room temperature
• 2 tbsp Dijon mustard • 2 slices Swiss cheese • 1/3 cup shredded leftover turkey
Note: Don’t worry if you don’t have all the leftovers required. Directions 1. Coat inside of each bread slice with mustard and a slice of cheese. Place turkey and cranberry sauce on one slice and dressing and gravy on the other. 2. Combine sandwich and spread butter on both sides. 3. In a panini maker or large skillet, grill until crispy and golden brown. 4. Slice and serve.
