Never forget â€¦
Veterans Day, also known as Remembrance Day, is Nov. 11 and Nora Hernandez is â€” for the fifth year â€” organizing a special service for those veterans buried at Mt. Olive Cemetery.
â€śEach year the service is different, but I do what I can so the families and the veterans know they are not forgotten.â€ť
The service will be held Nov. 12 at 4:30 p.m. and will honor veterans who are buried at Mt. Olive Cemetery. There will be the playing of Taps; 21 steps will replace the 21 gun salute; and Hernandez will deliver a special poem in recognition of her father and of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
â€śEven though they are gone, we want them to know we arenâ€™t going to forget what they did,â€ť Hernandez said.
