On Wednesday, Nov. 8, over a dozen members and Auxiliary members of Hudson VFW Post 5791 hosted a slightly early Veterans Day ceremony for the residents of Fairview Nursing Home in Hudson for all who are veterans. There were 19 veterans who each received a personalized plaque with their names and branches of service. There were over forty vets, family members and staff in attendance.
A 20th plaque was made, but sadly the British Army veteran who was to receive it passed away the night before. Arrangements were made to have the plaque displayed at her wake the next day.
The members of the Post all thanked the vets in attendance for their service. The Auxiliary then led everyone in a verse of “God Bless America” before the ceremony ended.
