Veterans Day in Magnolia


At the Pike County Veterans Memorial, Magnolia, Mississippi, November 11, 2011.

Today’s service began at 11:11 A.M. on a gloriously sunny morning in front of the Court House.

The Mrs. and I found a semi-shady spot to visit with many of the veterans and families.   The JROTC of South Pike High School presented the colors.  Many thanks to Maj (ret) J.W. Rayborn for his service with these fine young people.

A special Veterans Day speech was delivered by Willie Dunbar, student body President of North Pike High School.  Willie is a Senior at North Pike, and is an impressive young man in his own right.

Several of us, including Willie and his mom Rhonda, and his Principal, Darryl Brock, along with the American Legion commander Nickie White and his wife, and Jim Coleman and his wife joined Mrs. Nuke  and the staff from the local VA clinic for lunch at Chili Willie’s.

A wonderful service, and a memorable day.  Thanks, Lord for letting me be there.

  1. What a great way to honor Veterans Day.
    I wish I could have taken the time to visit some of the many celebrations and parades, but the meat world has its claws into me.
