I attended the dedication ceremony of the Veterans Memorial plaza on Exchange and Main in Crete on Saturday. Great turnout, easily over 200 people there. Nice speeches, CMHS played the national anthem and taps, 21-gun salute, lots of veterans in attendance, everyone just hung around yesterday and mingled afterwards.. I saw lots of tears being wiped from eyes during the flag raising ceremony and especially the playing of taps. A nice reminder of what being an American is all about.

The NW Indiana Times (of course) has 3 pictures on their site. Hopefully a story will follow

Thanks for being there! I had thrown out my last copy of the Southland Voice so I couldn't confirm for sure that it had been in your paper. I thought it was...
