“Letters and Portraits from War” is the theme of the annual Veterans Day ceremony held in Historic Yorktown. This year, the York County Historical Committee will mark the occasion with a service in the Board Room of York Hall, 301 Main Street, Yorktown, on Friday, November 10th at 12:00 noon. Throughout the service, photographs and excerpts from letters written during wartime deployment will be shared from local soldiers, sailors, and airmen to their family members and loved ones back home. In addition to concentrating on some of these little known, unsung heroes who have served our country, the service will also include tolling of the bell, presentation of the colors, singing of the National Anthem, Pledge of Allegiance and “Taps.” There will also be a special recognition of all veterans of our Armed Forces.
Participants in the program will include the York High School NJROTC, the Comte de Grasse Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, The Moore House Society, Children of the American Revolution, and Chapter 13 of the Disabled American Veterans. The Veterans of Foreign Wars Chapter 824 will act as the Color Guard for the ceremony.
