Veterans Day is this Wednesday and usually AMVETS Post 46 conducts an observance at the Veterans Park or the School auditorium. This year however with the number of members off the island, high winds expected Wednesday and the unavailability of the school due to Covid we will not be formally observing Veterans Day.
We hope that you remember veterans Wednesday and the sacrifice made by them over the years to protect the freedoms we all enjoy. The Veterans Park has over 600 bricks with the names and service information of individual veterans; take some time someday and look them over to get an understanding of the range of duty assignments that your friends and neighbors did in service to their country.
And thanks from Post 46 for supporting our activities that help veterans on the island and maintain the Veterans Park.
Editor’s note: If you are interested in adding a brick to the memorial, making a contribution or are a vet interested in joining the AMVETs, contact Bob Tidmore at AMVETS Post 46, PO BOX 319, Beaver Island, MI 49782.
