Sunday is Veterans Day, and because of that timing, observances are planned over a more extended period.
On Friday, Franklin College will have its annual Veterans Day luncheon. The speaker this year will be 1st Lt. Jesse Hoffman of the Indiana National Guard. The Franklin College alumnus will talk about his experience serving in the military while going to school.
On Saturday, a program is planned in Indianapolis; and on Sunday, a Greenwood church has scheduled an event. On Monday, programs include the traditional program at the Indiana Masonic Home in Franklin and one at Clark-Pleasant Middle School.
These programs all are heartfelt and important. They honor those who served and continue to serve the nation in the military. It is a small way of saying thanks.
