Tuesday is Veterans’ Day, and I wish all veterans — those serving now or those who have served — a blessed day.
I thank you for your service — especially my late grandfather, a World War II Navy veteran, and my stepfather, a Vietnam War Marine veteran — and ask others to do the same by taking part in the Veterans’ Day ceremony on Tuesday morning, Nov. 11.
Local veterans will be meeting at the American Legion Post #27 at 10:30 a.m., and at 10:45 they we will do a “light march” from the Post to the South Milwaukee War Memorial.
The 30-minute ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. at the memorial, located just north of Tony G’s Grant Park Garage.
A light lunch will be served at the post following the ceremony.
(In the case of inclement weather ensues, the ceremony will be held at the Post.)
