Community celebrates Veterans Day

| November 11, 2013

COSHOCTON – Churches, organizations, schools and businesses set aside time this week to honor area veterans.

Wal-Mart held a program Nov. 9 that paid special honor to local World War II Veterans. They were presented with a plaque from the store and a flag from Annin Flag. The family of Ray Border, who died in the current war on terror, also received the same honor and store employees who are veterans were recognized.

The local Wal-Mart store also collected notes of appreciation from the public to be shared with veterans and soldiers. Rich Wright from the VFW Post 1330 was given some of the notes to display at his organization and the rest were given to Girl Scout Troop 2527.

The Girl Scouts plan to add to the letters and send them overseas. This year they also sent cookies overseas to troops with the help of Post 1330. The VFW paid for the shipping of the cookies and also volunteered to pay to send the notes of appreciation to the troops.
