Veterans Day Is Not All About The Past

By Susan Hart


“Veterans are our grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters and cousins. They served on the airfields, beaches, ships and battlefields of World War II, in the cold and mud of Korea, in the heat and mud of the jungles of Vietnam.

Veterans Day is not all about the past. Every young soldier returning from Iraq and Afghanistan is a veteran,” excerpt by Jessie Gurner, November 15, 2007. That statement is still true one year later.

There are two opportunities we have to support our veterans in Water Valley.  Renasant Bank is hosting a reception on November 6 to honor our military men and women. Veterans, their families and the public are invited to the bank from 1:00 to 3:00.

An annual memorial service conducted by the VFW Ladies Auxiliary and Post 4100 Members will be Tuesday, November 11, at 11 a.m. at the beautiful memorial on Main Street.

Susie Shopper wants to see you on Main Street for the seventh annual Christmas Open House (see ad). It will be a perfect day for Christmas Shopping and spreading good cheer. Make plans for lunch. White Star Kitchen will be serving from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m Don Simoneaux at Sprint Mart has a great deal for Susie Shopper readers: a pizza stick and 22 oz. fountain drink FREE!
