At the Field of Valor a flag is flown that honors those who are serving or have served our country. Our Veterans Committee Omelet Bar Breakfast served breakfast to these who served. On Wednesday our Veterans attended the Flag lowering at the Plaza. Next was our annual Veterans Day program honoring our Orange Elks members who have served. At this year’s program, Don Westerfield the chairmen recognized and honored our two World War II Veterans who passed away.

The program ended with the singing of “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood.
Our Veterans are people who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America for an amount up to and including their life.  “As long as there is a Vet, the Orange Elks will never forget”!
Thanks to Mike Cash and Jeanine Storm for the pictures!
