Thank a Veteran for His or Her Service on Veterans Day

We extend our sincere appreciation for the service of our veterans of all wars.

Nov. 11 is Veterans Day so what better time to thank a veteran for their service. Here is a poem I found last year from poems submitted by students from Columbia Junior High thanking veterans


Because of You, Unknown Soldier
By Courtney Tanabe
 
Because of you, I am here
Because of you, I am able to live freely
 
Yet I do not know you
And I have not done anything for you
 
But there you stand, ready to fight
And there you are prepared to die
For me
 
You've fought before
And you'll fight again
For someone you don't know
 
So thank you Unknown Soldier
Fighting for me
 
I'm here because of you
And I owe my future to you

We honor those in our community who have put their lives on the line for us.

If you have a veteran you would like to honor, or attended a Veterans Day Ceremony in the local area and have photos to share, please add them here.
