Veterans Day - the day after
It was a little cool and a brisk breeze was blowing, but even with a sprinkle of rain this did not prevent a record turnout to the programs that were hosted by South Ripley Senior & Elementary Schools. Being in the programs as a Flag bearer with the honor guard I was not able to take as many photos as I have in past years. I did take a few at the Veterans Monument on the square tho. Amy Linkel, Assistant Principal of the Elementary School was kind enough to share one that she captured and emailed to me. I have posted these photos to the web at:
The Marine in two of the photos is PFC Everage, he has just completed his first phase of training and when training is completed he will be assigned to the White House. We may get a glimpse of him on TV, watch for him in the news. All and all it was a very warm reception brought forth by the people and students of our County of Ripley. Thank you from all Veterans.
