Today on Veterans Day (and every day), we honor and thank our military veterans.  Without you and your service, we would not be a free nation!  I attended the Rexburg Area Chamber of Commerce Veterans Memorial Day Ceremony. This year they highlighted those who served in the Vietnam War. The program was excellent.

Colonel Robert Jones; a Wreath Laying Ceremony, and more.Image attachmentImage attachment
