On this Veterans Day we reflect and give thanks to the men and women that have dedicated their life to serving our country. This photo was taken at the historic Truckee Veterans Memorial Building, dedicated on May 25, 1941 to the Veterans of Truckee from World War I. Sitting atop a hill on High Street overlooking our beautiful town, it still serves as a meeting place that enriches our community. The Veterans Memorial Museum can be visited in the foyer of TVMB.
If you are a local veteran, the Truckee chapter, American Legion Post 439, meets the second Tues. of each month at 6:00pm at the TVMB. For info you can contact the Veterans Help Line - 530-559-1155.
While we hopefully enjoy a day off of work, promotions and sales from retailers (including us*), and our regularly scheduled weekend plans, make sure to take time to reflect on the selfless commitment our Veterans make. There are many organizations that help support and thank these men and women, please consider giving. Operation We Are Here provides a directory of organizations.
Thank you, today and every day.
