The highlight of the Veterans Day Ceremony will be the presentation of the 2017 Lincoln County Veteran of the Year award. Marilyn Roseboro will sing the national anthem and other program participants are still being scheduled.
The event is organized by the Lincoln County Veterans Council and sponsored by American Legion Post 30 in Lincolnton. Jim Mayhew is heading up the parade and Larry Cline is leading the ceremony planning. The Veterans Council represents five veterans’ organizations in Lincolnton - Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Vietnam Veterans of America, American Legion and the Marine Corps League. These organizations work year-round to provide services and support to our area veterans.
Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans and is a U.S. legal holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars. The date and time is symbolic. In 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in World War I, then known as “the Great War.”
