Thursday, November 11, 2021:  Veterans Day started out with a program at the Riverside Elementry School.     

The kids sang and gave thanks as they have done every year.

Then at the Brainerd High School where some veterans were given hand made quilts from Quilts of Honor.  
Marine Corps Lt. General Paul Cibuzar (retired) was the main speaker talking about duty, honor and country.

A ceremony with a 21-gun salute and Taps was at the All-Veterans Memorial.

Veterans answered questions from onlookers.

Many restaurants that day, including Applebees, offered free meals to veterans.  Friendly waitresses too.

Quote of the day:    Thanks for recognizing veterans.  Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
