default November 11 - Veterans Day

Post by DoubleDipper Wed Nov 10, 2021 8:01 pm

Not to be confused with Memorial Day which honors those men and women who died while on active-duty military service, Veterans Day is meant to honor ALL veterans who have served or are serving.

This morning the University of Portland again began its more than 60-year tradition of posting a 24-hour vigil of Air Force and Army ROTC cadets at the Praying Hands/Broken Wall Memorial that will conclude with a ceremony that will include the playing of “Taps” and an address by guest speaker Maj. Gen. (Ret) Christopher Owens, USMC. ¬†Tomorrow 11/11 at 11…the public is welcome.

The theme for this Veterans Day 2021 picture is centered on the centennial commemoration of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier…

November 11 - Veterans Day  Vetera10

Located at Arlington National Cemetery, the Tomb was initially dedicated by the Army on Armistice Day, November 11, 1921, with the burial of an unknown service member from World War I. Over the past century, additional unknowns have been buried at the Tomb, and the site has become a people’s memorial that inspires reflection on service, valor, sacrifice, and mourning.

Honestly, there was never a drop of rain during the entire ceremony, but there was probably plenty during the 24-hour vigil.
