BATON ROUGE - Across the United States, appreciative citizens are using November 11 to honor the nation's veterans. 

Celebrated each November 11, on the anniversary of the conclusion of World War I, Veterans Day is a national holiday that officially recognizes the sacrifices of the men and women who have previously or are presently serving in the U.S. military.

In south Louisiana, several Veterans Day events are taking place.

Governor John Bel Edwards will honor veterans at 11 a.m. during the dedication of the Never Forget Garden in Louisiana Veterans Memorial Park.

Another event that honors veterans will take place Saturday, as the Southern University Army ROTC program hosts its fourth annual Veterans Day 5k Fun Run & Bike Ride at 7:30 a.m.
