Today is Veteran's Day. A Federal holiday set aside to honor our Veterans, both past and present. We have our brave young men and women that are presently serving our country, keeping our freedoms free, but we also have the men and women that have served previously and some that are still serving their communities and their fellow Vets. I'm talking about the guys like those pictured here today, from the American Legion Williams-Giroux-Post 90, who faithfully perform as the Color Guard at all the home football games, no matter the weather. Just one of the many services they perform for the community and comrades.

It is in their blood to serve and they have continued that service in their lives, way past the time they served their country. They proudly wear their uniforms and carry the flag, passing on the love of their country to the younger generation, as you can see in today's photos from Mary Schmitt. That's her 5 year old grandson out there on the field, learning how to honor our country and flag, right alongside his Grandpa and his Dad. He is the youngest member of the Sons of the American Legion-Post 90 and has his own uniform and cap, too. What a wonderful legacy to be passing down to our younger generations.

So, today we need to thank our Veterans, for all they do, all they've done and all they're still doing to teach our young people the proper way to honor our country and our flag.

Happy Veteran's Day and a BIG thank you for your service!

Honoring all our veterans who honorably served America. Their sacrifices are appreciated and more than we'll ever realize.

Remembering my Dad who served in Germany in WWII.

From Valley Forge to Afghanistan and Iraq thank you veterans. If not for veterans there would be no US of A

I would like to thank those who served and particularly Jim Ziemnick ,a Marine who served two tours of duty in Vietnam; my brother John who served in Vietnam in the artillery, my uncles two of whom where bomber pilots and flew over Berlin in World War II ; and those I knew personally who gave the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam; Edward Kolka , my neighbor, and Dale Moilanen , the valedictorian of the class ahead of mine in Dollar Bay. God Bless you all!

The forgotten Veterans who were not really veterans. During WWII the merchant seamen suffered more casualties than any branch of the military; Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force or Coast Guard. They were a vital link with enormous loss of life in supporting the war effort. In 1943 alone there were almost 2000 merchant ships sunk just in the Atlantic with very few survivors. These people were heroes just as were military personnel, yet they were never honored nor did they receive any of the veteran's benefits. Please remember these forgotten heroes as well as our veterans.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 - 03:28 pm:

I never thought of that. They should be remembered.
