Veterans Day Service

Posted: Updated:

Major hostilities of World War I ended in the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918.

It is for that reason that 95 years later, today we honor the service of U.S. military veterans.

One of the many appreciation programs taking place today recognized the sacrifice of past and present men and women responsible for American freedoms.

"One nation under God. Indivisible..."

(Wayne Paulson, VFW Department of ND Junior Vice Commander) "You know your life today would be entirely different without the courage and sacrifice of America's veterans."

(Pastor Dan Chell, Our Redeemers Church) "They've given their lives and even shed their blood for the cause of freedom."

"...were so gallantly streaming..."

(Wayne Paulson, VFW Department of ND Junior Vice Commander) "You're here today because you know how important they are."

(Steve Veikley, Army Bandsman Veteran) "If there's anything other than old glory that can bring a tear to people's eyes it's Taps."

(Wayne Paulson, VFW Department of ND Junior Vice Commander) "We're gathered to remember and to pay tribute to the countless sacrifices our nation's veterans made and the many liberties we enjoy today because of their selflessness and devotion to duties."

(Pastor Dan Chell, Our Redeemers Church) "We pray that we will always remember with gratitude, all our veterans and their gift of freedom to all of us."

(Wayne Paulson, VFW Department of ND Junior Vice Commander) "Though only a relative few have served, every American, no matter where they live, reaps the benefits of their service." >>
