Our veterans are not forgotten. On Thursday, November 11, American Legion Daniel M. O’Connell Post #272 honored those who served this country with a Veterans Day ceremony at the Doughboy Monument.

A crowd that included American Legion members, other veterans, Cub Scout Troop 147 and others gathered around the statue for the ceremony. American Legion and Auxiliary members led prayers and readings in tribute to this country’s veterans. Army Veteran Brian Galarza played Taps on the bugle, and the crowd joined in on singing "God Bless America" to conclude the brief ceremony.
