As is a custom in the small town I live near, the local Rotary Club had their annual Veteran's Day lunch for the survivng W W 2 veterans. As I live in a rural area, we do not have many of these fellows left. I was glad to see the same seven who came last year were present today. The event is held in the town's community center, which was built nine years ago and dedicated to the memory of the 1000+ young men and women who answered the call to serve their country. Throughout the building, named the W W 2 Memorial Building, are framed photos of these County residents who served. Under their photo there is also has a text of their service time, battles fought and decorations earned. The main hall is a Hall of Honor having the names of the fallen written in gold leaf around the top of the walls. Every year, I am asked to participate with a display of historical period militaria. Attached are some pictures of the vets and this year's displayhonoring them.
