Sit with a soldier, listen to a vet
Humboldt area residents will have the opportunity to honor Veterans on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 1 p.m. at Zion Lutheran Church.
“Sit with a Soldier, Listen to a Veteran” will take place that afternoon as the stories of 25 Veterans are shared.
Pam Davis, one of the organizers of the event, said it was so well received two years ago it was decided to do it again.
The format will be a bit different. Students from Doug Van Pelt’s history classes will be interviewing the 25 Veterans in advance. The stories will be read at the Nov. 10 event.
“For a lot of Veterans, telling their story in front of a large group is difficult. This is a way for all of us to hear their stories, to honor them and to show what went into us having the freedoms we have today,” Davis said.
There will be cookies and coffee served afterwards. Free-will donations will be accepted with all proceeds going to support the Honor Flights.
All branches of Veterans from World War II on up to Afghanistan will be represented.
