Honor Military Men and Women for Their Service

 VFW Veterans Day Ceremony

12 November 2018

 

On the Veterans Day Holiday, Monday 12 November 2018, VFW Post 7139 will honor and salute all American Veterans who, throughout our history, have unselfishly placed their lives on the line for freedom. It is the 100 year anniversary of Veterans Day that started as Armistice Day on November 11, 1918 when fighting was ceased in WWI. This year we especially honor Iraq and Afghanistan Wars Veterans. These wars have been drawn out for 18 years, longer than any wars in which the US has been involved. Even now our active duty veterans are still finishing up operations against ISIS and continue fighting the Afghan insurgents. China is challenging the U.S. in the Pacific and Russia is challenging in Europe. Our current and past veterans never hesitate to complete their duties and assignments with utmost courage. We will hold our Veterans Day program on Monday, Nov. 12 at 11AM at the Veterans Memorial Building on Mission Drive in Solvang. We will have a number of speakers, patriotic music and a luncheon. We honor our troops around the world and those who are still countering our current threats. We invite all veterans, their families and caring citizens to attend. We also welcome veterans from allied countries who fought beside our Service Men and Women.
