Veterans Day

Honor American Heroes Nov. 11, 2018

(Holiday observed Nov. 12)


Veterans Day is when Americans honor those who have served in the U.S. Military—a time to express gratitude to those who have made great sacrifices to preserve our freedom.

On Veterans Day, we honor those individuals and reflect on their sacrifice. All of the men and women throughout history who fought in battles, served in the National Guard and the reserves or were stationed in a base, stateside or overseas, and did their part to protect the safety and rights of Americans.

Many military veterans have gone on to serve California’s public schools as classified school employees. There are a variety of reasons why CSEA members who are veterans served in the military. Some were drafted, some followed long family traditions and others felt a duty to defend their country.
