This Sunday, 11/11 at 11am a Veteran’s Day Service will be held at Soldotna Sports Center. Local veteran Steve Wright said it’s always a moving time.
Wright: “Actually, it’s a solemn service, it’s a memorial service, so it’s not a happy occasion and I guarantee you, you won’t make it through without crying.”
Wright said the service will include the presenting of the colors and a number of speakers.
Wright: “The most important is usually someone that’s serving on active duty. Every time, they have a rifle salute outside, and that’s with the M1 Garand rifles and our old, crusty old veterans go outside and do that. And playing of Taps, and that’s when everybody cries is when Taps is played.”
