Elks Honor Military on the Eleventh Day
In 1918 on the Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh month, the guns in France fell silent.
The silence signified the beginning of a truce and the end of Wold War One.
This November’s national holiday is now known as Veterans Day, a day of honor for all the millions of men and women who have served in the defense of these United States of America.
Citizen soldiers have answered the call to protect, defend, and safeguard both American soil and that of our allies.
From Concord to today, all have answered the call to duty, serve, defend, and face death for our country. The Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and Space Force are populated by our citizens. What better way to recognize these citizens than to salute and honor them by flying your American Flag proudly on the Veterans Day and every day.
Please take a trip down Main Street Pulaski on Friday the 11th.. Stop by the Courthouse to reflect on the monuments’ messages on the front lawn for the missing and the POW’s, stroll further down Main to the Elks Lodge and pay tribute or salute the flags of our veterans past and present. Send up a prayer of hope to the ones who will be tomorrow’s veterans.
Trinity Lutheran Church will play both religious and patriotic music at 11 a.m. on its church bell music system in honor of Veterans Day.
