WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Residents at the Indiana Veterans' Home were honored for their service Sunday. This Veterans Day is particularly special because it marks the 100th anniversary for the signing of the armistice. IVH has been in the community for 122 years and was originally created to care for veterans in the Civil War and that same care is still provided to today.

Sergeant Russell Eaglin, the event's keynote speaker said it's important to celebrate the vets living in the home.

“We come here to help them here in their home because they can't get out and travel so we come here to celebrate Veterans Day with them,” said Eaglin.

With it being the 100th anniversary, Eaglin said today meant a lot to him.

“It makes it special because you're celebrating those that went before us and remembering and honoring them,” said Eaglin.

Eaglin said the vets always enjoy the Veterans Day ceremony because it gives them an opportunity to connect and share their stories.
