This week I would like to talk about a couple things:  first, on the 10th of November we celebrate the 243rd Birthday of the United States Marine Corps.  The Marines have fought in critical battles throughout our history from Tarawa, Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, to Khe Sanh, Fallujah, and so many many more.  In our community we have had many men and women who have served in the corps over the years.  My list will not be complete, but I will try to list some of them, Tighe Robey, Laura Mason, Ralph Buechner, Jim Buechner, Don Bell, Curtis Winter, Leo Peterson, John Pare, David Waraczynski, Vaughn Pakkala, Vaughn Ableman, Jim Quall, Wayne Syvrud, Ed Straus, Joe Williams, John Brixy, Art Elver, Bill Elver, Dave Geisler, and Eric Allison.  Please thank all Veterans but on this 243rd Birthday of the Marine Corps please thank all those that served in the Marine Corps over the years.

On the 11th of November the Bells of Peace for Armistice Commemoration is urging everyone across the country to ring the bells at 11 AM to remember the signing of the armistice that was signed 100 years ago to end World War I.

On the 12th of November most communities around the nation will honor all Veterans.  In Mount Horeb we will gather at the High School at 10:30 AM and at Ingleside at 2:15 PM.  Please come out to one of the programs and thank all Veterans for their service to our Great Country. 

I would personally like to thank all Veterans for their service without you we would not be able to enjoy all the freedoms we enjoy today.
