Veterans Day

We had a short ceremony to commemorate Veterans Day. At 11 am on 11/11 the park manager, Debbie, asked everyone who was interested to gather at the flagpole. We sang the national anthem and recited the pledge of allegiance. I like ceremonies. We have too few in American society. Not being religious, we don't get the every Sunday ceremonies of church. So this was cool. Debbie read some Veteran's Day information to the group. At one point, she had all the veterans come together and face the rest of us so we could applaud them. A pretty impressive group. And then we went inside the 'meetin' hall' and Jim read a paper on The Unknown Soldier. We're glad to be part of this. Thanx Debbie. Watch the Photostory 3 Movie that Jim put together of this Veteran's Day.
