Again, yesterday, the Vernon Elementary School honored veterans with a wonderful breakfast and program.
As a Vietnam veteran, I wish to thank the principal, teachers, students and the ladies who made the quilts for us. I was one of the lucky recipients of a warm, beautiful, handmade quilt that I will treasure for many years.
Each year I marvel at the effort to make Veterans Day a special time for us and the chance to chat with fellow veterans of the Vernon community.
Thank you all again, I will never ever take this special day for granted and look forward to it next year.
Michael Humphrey, US Navy veteran
