We have usually observed Veterans Day on the Stated or Special Communication nearest the actual holiday.  This year our observance will take place the evening of our Special Communication for Fellow Craft, November 16th.  The W.M. is asking that as part of this years observance all brethren who are veterans, retired, or current members of the U.S. armed forces to wear either their full medals, “mini” medals, or the ribbons they were awarded while in service to their country.
