Since Veterans Day fell on a Sunday (November 11) this year, the memorial service at our State Capitol grounds was held yesterday. There was a small crowd of people attending, maybe about 100 or so. Not really a great turn out for a town the size of Des Moines, Ia. but at least there were a few wanting to pay their respects to veterans throughout history.
Lest we forget what our veterans have done for all of us, please go tell a veteran how much you appreciate their service and thank them.
