Veterans Day, Flag features available for NIE

Oct 24, 2012

Veterans Day is Nov. 11 and this year it will be commemorated on Monday, Nov. 12. The Missouri Press Association has created a feature on the history of Veterans Day, including a timeline of how the commemoration moved from a one-time Armistice Day remembrance in 1919, to an annual holiday recognized across our nation.

In 2011, MPA produced a feature on flag etiquette and released it for Veterans Day. More than 250 newspapers nationwide downloaded the Flag Etiquette feature. This feature is still available as well.

Both the Flag Etiquette feature and the new Veterans Day feature were created in partnership with The Missouri Bar Association. Newspapers may download the features at For the Veterans Day feature use download code: veterans. For the Flag Etiquette feature, use the download code: usflag.
