Tomorrow, November 11th, is Veterans Day in America and in Nevada County local veterans groups are planning events to honor our local veterans. U.S. Navy Captain (retired) Cap Wellington says the event will be at the Grass Valley Veterans Building starting at 10 o’clock.
The Keynote speaker this year is Dr. Page Brown who has been working with returning veterans.
Dr. Brown has been working with Brian Comte, MSGT, U.S. Army (Retired) who is also going to share his experience.
After the Keynote speakers, a Medley of Service Songs will be sung by Donna Matson and Veterans will be asked to muster near the stage when their service is recognized, which usually draws a huge crowd. The service will conclude at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month with the Nevada County all Veterans Honor Guard performing a Three Volley gun Salute and taps. Then lunch will be served downstairs to veterans by the American Legion post 130.
