Post 88 to host Veterans Day gathering in Caz

— The Commander of the Cazenovia American Legion Post 88, Jack Mott, and the Commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 113, George Barnard, invite the community to attend a Veterans Day gathering at 11 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, in Memorial Park on Albany Street in Cazenovia.

From 7 to 11 a.m., Bill Tilison, owner of Dave’s Diner at Common Grounds, is offering a free cup of coffee to all Veterans.

After the ceremony, all veterans and their families are invited to the Cazenovia American Legion’s Post Home at 26 Chenango St. for light refreshments.

Memorial Day is set aside in May as a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of the country. Veterans Day in November gives citizens an opportunity to thank the living veterans for their military service, and to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated.

The words, “thank you for your service” means to a veteran that his or her service to their country has not been forgotten.

Veterans fear that their contributions will fade away, that no one cares. This is especially true with active duty veterans who may now be burdened with psychological and physical wounds.

The deepest respect is owed to them, their families and caregivers for their sacrifices. Fly the American flag on Veterans Day.
