By The Staff

On Wednesday at 11 a.m. the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) will conduct a commemorative program to honor the Veterans of the United States. The program will be held at the VFW Building at 1793 Deacon Street and is open to the public.

Other community groups will be represented and several speakers and an appropriate patriotic program will be presented.

“I would suggest to parents who are unable to attend this program, that they take the opportunity to talk to their children about Veteran’s Day,” said Bill Hudson, a former Marine and a World War II veteran. “Explain to them what a veteran is and why it is important to know about this national holiday.”

A person who receives an honorable discharge from the military or someone who was killed on active duty is considered a veteran. Today there are approximately 20 million living veterans in civilian life. On Veterans Day, all of these men and women are honored   along with all veterans who participated in previous wars and conflicts in the past.

“The military defended our freedom of speech, assembly, religion and the press,” Hudson said. “These freedoms are part of our American heritage and some of the reasons why our country is the greatest country in the world.
