Honoring our veterans: Events around the Roanoke, New River valleys”

Kearns said it's important to continue to honor veterans so people will continue to serve to protect citizens' freedoms.

An American flag flies during a Veterans Day ceremony a year ago at the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen.

A mural honoring the Gulf War and all USA military members who served in the Middle East will be dedicated at the city's annual Veterans Day Tribute and Ceremony at 11 a.m. Saturday.

In 1992, four World War II veterans from the Flint Hills wanted to build a memorial for those who had served in the military. Registration and checkin begins at 8 a.m. Pre-registration is $22 (plus service fee), while race day it is $30.

The New Hampshire Veterans Home in Tilton is hosting a Veterans Day ceremony today at 11 a.m. There will be no parade preceding the ceremony. PTSD is a mental health problem that typically develops after a person experiences or witnesses a life threatening event such as combat in war, a natural disaster, vehicle accident, or sexual assault (Veterans Affairs). A ceremony will take place at 11 the American Legion, 91 American Legion Drive.

Admission is free, but donations to the Oswegoland Heritage Association are gratefully accepted. The route for the parade traditionally has been through downtown Anna.

A breakfast for veterans is planned starting at 7:30 a.m.

Following the service, the traditional barbecue lunch (ribs or chicken) is served, with the meal offered from noon to 3 p.m., at the Community Center.

The Veterans Day program is conducted by the local VFW and Legion posts, and their respective auxiliary units.

On Sunday, the NAACP will hold its annual Veterans Day Celebration at 4 Schaeffer Memorial Baptist Church in Christiansburg. It will be followed by a raffle drawing for the Eugene Voiland Flag program.

The parade will step off at 10 the corner of First and Main streets. Also on Saturday, the Colonel William Preston Chapter NSDAR will host a free Laying of the Wreath Ceremony at 1:30 Roanoke's Lee Plaza to honor and thank military personnel. A ceremony will follow at Patriots Park.

Oswego's Little White School Museum's "Remembering Our Veterans" exhibit filled with photographs, documents, artifacts and a section devoted to those who have served from Oswego, will remain open through November 12th. Check your individual municipality's website for more information.
