After the ceremony, the American Legion will host a lunch for veterans and their families at the post home, 619 W. Spruce St. "Members have been honoring veterans in the ceremony for many years and the American Legion continues to do so throughout the year", Miller said.

A ceremony honoring the World War II veterans was held at the American and Chinese World War II Memorial Monument in front of the Monterey Park City Hall in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The VFW, the VVA, the American Legion and the Plymouth Elks will give presentations on the various veterans programs they participate in. While each country commemorates the event differently, the goal is the same - to thank the fearless men and women who put their lives on the line to protect others. Although Americans previously observed Armistice Day - with other countries to recognize the end of World War I - the United States renamed Veterans Day in 1954. This free event is open to all members of the community.

A luncheon will follow the ceremony.

Along with the formal ceremony, Friday will also be peppered with Veterans Day events put on by local schools. "And songs are just downright Americana".

"It's a learning experience for them to see who the first ones were to fight for our freedom and who's doing it now", she said.

All veterans are invited to attend on Friday morning the Veterans Day observance at Clinton High School.

On Friday, November 11, Leon County and the American Legion Sauls-Bridges Post 13 invite the community to honor our hometown heroes at the Operation Thank You Veterans Day Breakfast. The flags will be collected and properly retired as part of a formal ceremony conducted by members of American Legion Post 84 in Henrico County.
