"America's veterans bravely answered the call to serve our great country so that we may live in peace and freedom," said Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan. "On Veterans Day, we pause to honor their service and their sacrifice.  Thank you to all of our veterans—from all branches of the military—past, present, and future, as well as their families. As we pay tribute to these heroic men and women, let us also renew our commitment to ensure that every veteran has access to the housing, services, and resources they need to navigate civilian life in our community, 365 days a year."

As a reminder, physical access to municipal buildings remains very limited during the City’s response to COVID-19, and will remain limited until further notice. City offices and services are still accessible via the phone, website, and email, but will be closed for business on Wednesday, November 11th.
