Veterans who work for the City and all veterans will be honored by the City of El Paso with a complimentary luncheon Tuesday, November 7, at 11:30 a.m., at the Judson F. Williams Convention Center.

El Paso Mayor Dee Margo said the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month has a significant meaning. The 3 elevens are a mental marker to help us remember November 11, 1918, which was the end of World War I. Margo said it is a time-honored ceremony that reminds us of the Armistice of 1918 and the sacrifices paid by our veterans, past and present, to keep this nation free.

The City of El Paso will honor nearly 1,000 employee veterans from various departments who have proudly served the United States, and will also welcome all veterans who have served our country. In an effort to help all veterans, the City has made it a goal to provide a Veteran Resources Center, which maintains a list of resources and assistance for veterans.

We owe such a debt of gratitude for all who have served. We can never repay that debt.
