Lincoln celebrates Veterans Day

November 11 - Today a small group of people braved the cold and the wind to pay their respects to our veterans on Veterans Day. Our national anthem rang out, and prayers were offered. Area Boy Scouts were on hand, and after the speeches and the shots fired in salute, Taps could be heard floating through the Veterans Memorial.

Since the end of World War I, ceremonies like this one have been an annual occurence, bringing to mind how important our military forces are to the survival of our nation. To those who have served, and those who are now serving, we say thank you for keeping us free. We truly appreciate all you have done.
