We at 96.1 WODZ salute veterans and those serving in our military today on the observance of Veterans' Day. We thank you for your service; many of whom have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. As today is a federal holiday, there are a number of closings today.

There will be no regular mail delivery today, post offices and schools are closed, most banks and financial institutions are closed as well as many governmental offices, including social security offices.

There will be a number of veterans observances and events taking place today in central New York as well.
