Honoring Our Veterans

20161111_114229

Veterans Day services were held around the area Friday to honor the men and women who served our country…

That was the sound of Taps playing Friday morning at the Veterans Day service at West Delaware Middle School. Manchester Legion member Larry Beaman says it’s important for the students to be part of the services.

One local veteran took time out of his day to attend the Veterans Day service.

One Manchester veteran spent the 11 o’clock hour on Friday morning standing at the Veterans Memorial at the Delaware County Courthouse. Roger Lawrence was dressed in his Navy uniform as he paid tribute to those who served.

Veterans Day services were also held Friday at St. Mary’s School in Manchester, at the Earlville Civic Center and at the Kennedy Living Center in Dyersville.
