On Saturday, May 19, 2012, which happens to be Armed Forces Day, the Morgan County Pilot’s Association will be sponsoring a Veteran’s Recognition Day to recognize and honor all veterans from all services. The Pilot’s Association invites all citizens and veterans from Morgan and nearby counties to come and mingle with one another, swap stories and view the static displays of various aircraft and military vehicles. The event is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. A flag ceremony will be conducted at 10:30 a.m. by our own Morgan County’s American Legion Post 67 and VFW Post 6154 veterans.
Like last year we will have several veteran speakers to tell what it was like to fly those dangerous combat missions of WWII, Korea, Vietnam and others; to return from those missions and talk about them. All Veterans are invited to bring personal memorabilia, medals, etc. that they would like to share with others. These are just some of the men and women who fought to preserve the freedoms we currently enjoy.
There will also be a brunch available starting about 11 a.m. and run through about 1 p.m. So come one, come all to this great event to honor and recognize all our veterans, active and inactive, who have served in the air, on the ground, on and under the oceans to protect this great nation. Come and have a fun day.
