Callaway-Jones Salutes Veterans Today

As the calendar turned to Nov. 11th today, almost every adult American realized it was a special day of remembering. It’s the day we honor the men and women who have served our country whether in wartime or in peace. History reminds us that the setting aside this day, once known as Armistice Day, occurred in a document signed at 11:11 am on Nov. 11, the 11th day of the 11th month.

Callaway-Jones continues to thank our community citizens who have served our country valiantly in their lifetimes. We also honor our newest recruits and enlistees. From boot camp to retirement, those who offer themselves to serve our country deserve our highest and best praise and appreciation.

If you’d like to take part in today’s community observance of Veteran’s Day ceremony, it will begin at 5:30pm at the Louis L. Adam Memorial Plaza of Veterans Park and Athletic Complex, 3101 Harvey Rd., in College Station. The address is 3101 Harvey Road. The Corps of Cadets will offer a rifle salute and playing of “Taps.” Beloved former basketball coach Gary Blair, a Marine by service branch, is guest speaker. Although the latest marble engravings of the newest names added to the Wall of Honor could not be completed by today’s service, their names will be read aloud.

To add the name of your loved one to honor their military service to the Wall, or for more information, visit the Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial web site. To all Veterans, we salute you!
