Hi. Veterans Day 2019 was a few weeks ago, as of the time of making of this post. Unfortunately I wasn't here to wish everyone a happy Veterans Day and/or to ask questions about it, for reasons listed in a few other threads

What does one do traditionally to celebrate and/or observe the holiday, besides watch the Veterans Day Parade? I didn't watch the 2019 parade - I forgot it was on. I had work to do that day anyway.

Do people have barbeques/cookouts? Do people go to military-themed events and/or go to museums to see military-themed exhibits? Do people watch war docs and/or movies and/or any special military-themed television programs and/or specials?

I don't know what people traditionally do on this holiday. I have never celebrated and/or observed it.

Please help. Thank you.

The principle of liberty includes cultural independence. You should design your own way to honor veterans on Veteran's Day. Devoting thought to their sacrifice and how it contributes to liberty is a good start. If you want to watch war movies or study some other historical texts/narratives that support your endeavor to honor veterans on Veteran's Day, that is not a bad idea.

Just the fact that you are thinking about how to respect and honor veterans indicates that your heart is in the right place.

And then will you submit to that or submit to the authority of liberty?
