Preparing for Veterans Day

Send a link to a friend 

HardwareTo the editor:

Lincoln AMVETS Post 71 would like to ask all Logan County residents to fly their flags on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, weather permitting, to honor the service of all Logan County veterans, both living and deceased.

We would also like to invite the public to visit All Veterans Park, located on the corner of Union and Pekin streets in Lincoln, because we have continued to install new granite bricks, purchased to honor our veterans' service, throughout the past year. We have a directory that is very user-friendly and has directions inside the notebook that is located at the brick display site. Check out our latest names.

Nursing Homes

This holiday season is an excellent time to purchase a new $35 granite brick for a veteran, living or deceased, in your family. All veterans, male or female, are eligible, including those serving in the Reserve, National Guard, Coast Guard or regular full-time military service involving honorable service from the Civil War to the present conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. This service can be either peacetime or during war.

The bricks purchased will be laid in All Veterans Park as soon as possible. There are blank order forms available in a display holder located at the brick display site.

For more information, contact Ruth Haak at 217-732-8829.
