“It is important to remember our veterans because without them, we wouldn’t have as many freedoms as we do. It’s always important to remember those that give their lives for others.”

Pete Hamilton, DePue

“It’s important to honor the veterans for the sacrifices they have made for us, so we can have the freedoms we have today.”

Tim Hamilton, DePue

“It’s important to remember them for the great sacrifices they’ve made not only for themselves but for their families.”

Betty Bland, Peru

“I think we need to thank the veterans for our freedom and all we have.”

Vicki Pearson, Colorado Springs, Colo.

“Veterans Day evokes memories of their contributions during the war and how they have lived their lives after the war. I really appreciated the insert the BCR had in Saturday’s paper which honors those that served.”

Sharon Kopina, Ladd
