York County to Observe Veterans Day
Monday, Nov. 12, 2018 at 12 p.m.
“Letters from War” is the continuing theme of the annual Veterans Day ceremony held in historic Yorktown. This year, the York County Historical Committee marks the occasion with a memorial service.
Throughout the service, excerpts from letters written during wartime deployment from local soldiers, sailors, and airmen to their families back home will be read. In addition to concentrating on some of these little known, unsung heroes who have served our country, the service includes tolling of the bell, presentation of the colors, singing of the National Anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance, and “Taps.” A special recognition of all Veterans of our Armed Forces is part of the program.
