Around 15 people attended services at the Veterans Memorial.  The American Legion held a service at the Blair House as well.  During the ceremony at the Blair House, was a rifle salute.

The rifles are fired on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month to signify the signing of the treaty that ended World War I.  Following the rifle salute was the playing of Taps.

KCII wishes to thank all veterans in our community and across the country for their service.
