Late Veterans Day 2014

Merci:  Yes, we know yesterday was Veterans Day in the U.S. 

Micah:  But as you know, we are always late. 

Rusty:  This time Jan did read the calendar ahead of an event but she couldn't take the photographs until yesterday.


Buddy:  Each year Thomaston, Georgia holds a ceremony to honor our veterans for their service. Here are the speakers and the Wreath Layers.

Cameron:  Not that we were there.  Jan doesn't take us anywhere.  She just comes home and says, "You won't believe what you missed." 


Cyndi:  These are NJROTC lined up behind everyone.  This is only a portion of the group. 


Marcus:  This group is the Upson-Lee High School Marching Band.  Jan said they played music.  It's too bad they didn't have Buddy there to howl ... I mean, sing with them.  He can carry a tune really well.

Sam:  Here is a shot of some of the attendees.  Many of them were vets and their families.


Percy:  The Exhibition Drill Team did a presentation. 

Merci:  CDR Malcolm Williams, the bugler on the far right played Taps. 

Buddy:  City officials attend the ceremony.  Here is our Mayor Hays Arnold. 

Cyndi:  And Jan's favorite police officer, Chief Dan Greathouse.

Sam:  Captain Toby Hardeman, Sheriff Dan Kilgore and Gary Bedford. (l - r)

Percy:  And here we have the reason for the ceremony:  veterans!  Jan was too late to get a shot of all the vets attending, but she was in time to grab a shot of her friend Johnnie's annual photo group.

Merci:  Willie Brown, Jeffrey Hobbs, Ralph Mann, Jr., Willie Harris, Leroy Terry, Robert Jackson, and Jimmy Edmondson.  (l - r)

Rusty:  We will see all of you guys next year.  Well, Jan will.  We'll just get to see your picture.  Take care and be in health!

Cameron:  Jan says we should honor our vets and never forget they leave families behind for long deployments.

Micah:  I guess we're fortunate to have such brave men and women who serve.

Note:  Clicking on a photo sometimes enlarges it; however, we make no promises when dealing with Blogger.
