Fairbury Thanks Area Veterans For Service, Fairbury News Now Nebraska Ne

Many people of all ages congregated at the VFW in Fairbury to honor veterans for their service to the country and to thank them for all of the sacrifices they have made to defend the United States.

The evening started with a dinner service, and was followed by opening remarks from Steve Black and Judith Kluge of the Fairbury Elks Lodge. Then, the Honor Guard, led by Stan Schiermeyer, posted the colors as Peg Friesen and Nate Behrends led everyone in singing “The Star Spangled Banner.”

Members of the various branches of the military (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, Seabees) stood as they were recognized for their service to the country. Veterans who served in times of peace and in times of conflict, including World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, the Gulf War, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan, stood and were recognized for their willingness to lay their life on the line to protect the United States.
