HONORING OUR VETS
Today’s Veterans Day events in Madras included a ceremony at the Aviation Memorial across the street from the Madras Airport and hosted by Madras VFW Post 12141.
Because of COVID-19, the ceremony was held outside and not at Erickson Aircraft Museum.
The 20 minute ceremony started at 10:00 AM with an Invocation and Flag salute.
The agenda included acknowledgement of veterans and the branches they served, history of the POW/MIA Flag, TAPS and a raffle.
Also in attendance, Madras Mayor Richard Ladeby, Madras Police Chief Tanner Stanfill and Jefferson County Commissioner Mae Huston.
