Veterans Day service planned in Ligonier

The Byers-Tosh American Legion Post 267 and Fort Ligonier Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 734 will conduct a Veterans Day ceremony 11 a.m. Tuesday on the Diamond.

A parade led by members of the Ligonier Valley Honor Guard will begin at 10:45 a.m. at the VFW post on East Main Street and proceed to the Ligonier Bandstand.

The joint service will be led by American Legion Commander D.J. Jackson and VFW Commander John Balega.

Representing the American Legion, Second Vice Commander Steve Kimmick will serve as master of ceremonies at the service.

Others participating in the service include: Mayor Ormond “Butch” Bellas, American Legion Auxilary president Sue Crouse and VFW Auxilary president Donna Jones.

Following the brief comments, flowers will be placed at the memorial marker by the auxiliary presidents.

“In Flanders Fields” will be read and the commanders will place flags on the Diamond’s memorial marker and order a comrades salute. “Taps” will be played and the commanders will raise the flag.

A meal will be served at the American Legion following the ceremony.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
