Veterans awarded pins at Christian school
VERGENNES — For the past 10 years the Champlain Valley Christian School in Vergennes has held a Veterans Day breakfast and a ceremony thanking our local veterans for their service.
At this year’s breakfast, which took place last Friday, Nov. 11, there was an addition made to the program. Some veterans received a new pen to mark their service.
The Seth Warner — Rhoda Farrand Chapter of the DAR is a Commemorative Partner with the United States of American Vietnam War Commemoration. Any veteran who served between Nov. 1, 1955, and May 15, 1975, is eligible to receive the Vietnam Era lapel pin. Seventeen of the veterans attending the CVCS program last Friday were called forward to receive their pin.
