American Legion Post 106 of Grayling hosted a brief outdoor ceremony on Veterans Day to honor men and women who have served in the United States military.
The country celebrated Veterans Day on Wednesday, November 11.
Larry Domcik, American Legion Post 106 Commander, said the post wanted to do something “short and sweet” to commemorate the day and honor those who have served.
“We continue our endeavors on behalf of honorable world peace with a feeling of profound gratitude to God and to the men and women who gave their lives as part of the noblest causes. Out of blood and sweat we learned sacrifice, tolerance, bravery, and discipline. These are solid foundation stones upon which a great nation is built,” Domcik said. “In our continued quest for honorable peace, honorable world peace, we must cultivate these virtues.”
“We thank every veteran and pray that peace will continue,” Domcik said.
Steve Green, American Legion Post 106 Chaplain, offered a prayer during the ceremony.
“Eternal God, we thank thee for this hallowed soil. Make us worthy. Grant thy comfort to the families who this day remember the sorrow of the death of the ones who gave their life for our country. Sustain those veterans confined to hospitals throughout the land who bear the scars of war, preserve us from forgetfulness, grant the gift of peace to our land and the world,” Green said.
