Veteran’s Day was observed with dignity and honor at the Normandy Senior Living recently as residents gathered to recognize their own as well as veterans everywhere!
The day was hallmarked by the elegant musical backdrop of the Zeta Sigma Alumni Chapter of Delta Omicron Music Fraternity and Father Keller for his blessing.
The group shared a stirring fife and drum prelude, patriotic medley and sign-a-long ensemble performance as the Normandy recognized the veterans of its own: Mike Ban, Jim Boulton, Michael Clay, Doug Bradfield, Stanley Doenecke, William Fitzgerald, Jay Hoffman, Dan Larsen, John Lloyd, Robert Reid, John Roth (Army), Herbert Hoppe, Richard Donaldson, Steven Beckman (Air Force0 and Daniel Matias (Navy).
All shared in the words of Abraham Lincoln (1863): “The brave men, living and dead, who struggle here, have consecrated this ground far above our power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.”
