Honoring our Veterans

May 30, 2019
2:00pm - 2:45pm
Courageous, patriotic, devoted, honorable, selfless, brave, strong, resilient and dedicated are the words that describe the 47 US Military Veterans who will be saluted at “Honoring Our Veterans” at New Cassel Retirement Center. They are our all American heroes! These 47 men and women defended our country and provided each of us our freedom. On this special day, we all come together to say ‘thank you!” From the youngest to the oldest, we all owe our veterans more than we could ever afford to give, at least we can say “thank you” and give them a very special day!
Our event will encompass posting of the colors, a guest speaker, a thank you to our veterans and spouses of veterans, the playing of Taps and refreshments for our guests. This year we welcome Steve Jordon, retired Omaha World-Herald Reporter and Editor, as our guest speaker. Steve was born in Parkersburg, West Virginia and lived in Michigan, Okinawa and Kansas with his Air Force family before landing in Bellevue, Nebraska where his father, Colonel Ken Jordon, was stationed three times with the US Air Force’s Strategic Air Command.
American Legion Post #1 will Post the Colors, play Taps and conduct a rifle salute. Each veteran will receive a patriotic gift and spouses of veterans will receive red, white and blue flowers courtesy of Honor and Remember Nebraska Chapter.
