Question.....

The ceremony is on SUNDAY, Veterans Day (not Monday) at 11:00 o'clock. I received a notification from the Post which mentions lunch at the VFW following the ceremony.

I also received an e-mail from the Town re the program for the ceremony, but I don't believe it mentioned lunch.

Veterans Day is to thank all of the veterans for their service. Its not about a FREE LUNCH> It shows where you stand looking for a FREE LUNCH. Maby those looking for a free lunch should make a donation to the organization that is providing food. Its obivious those looking for a FREE LUNCH didnt serve in the military

some of you are so narrow minded. Maybe they are asking so they are prepared, make sure they have $ on them? Or maybe they are asking for an elderly family member, who is a vet, who is lower income? Please don't always assume the worst in people.

The service was very nice and the reception at the VFW was too. The food was terrific, and I enjoyed hanging out for awhile and chatting with everyone. I felt no pressure whatsoever to donate anything, but I plunked down some money for a poppy anyway. Everyone seemed to have a really good time.

Thank you, Nikke. You hit the nail on the head. I had hoped that after the election folks would try to be more positive. I'm still Hoping.

I was an Army employee for over 20 years. I don't appreciate your comments. As a civilian, working 60 plus hours a week and traveling overseas under uncomfortable conditions, I didn't have the opportunity for subsidized child care, free medical, tax free shopping at the PX and dining facilities, free housing, etc. I'm sick of military and former military employees pouting "poor me!" Our soldiers, sailors, air men, marines and coast guard choose their profession, are currently getting good salaries and get extra help with employment
when they retire. I appreciate the "crap" our Service men and women have to accept when they go in the Service and hate that their country sends them where they should not have to/do not need to go and risk their lives. That should be appreciated; however,
military personnel should also appreciate their fellow citizens who are doing the best they can and paying their salaries, whether or not we agree with their mission.

The mural covering what was a boarded up window on the VFW's building on Hawthorn is a great improvement.

fyi, you make some prudent points. While I/we appreciate what our military folks do, we are getting tired of the people on Topix who bitch about the "freeloaders' and don't appreciate how many benefits they have received from the tax payers.
