Veteran’s Day Breakfast at Pine Run
Eighty-seven men and women mobilized early on Friday, November 9 to commemorate Veteran’s day at Pine Run. Veterans of all wars were invited to the annual event held in the Auditorium, Pictures of the freedom fighters lined the walls and many of the honorees attended in uniform.
Stories of secret surveillance, supply lines, map reading, and radio operations, as well as non-combat assignments were humbly exchanged and thanks were expressed for the sacrifices of comrades on the front lines and family members left to fend for themselves at home. The day of fellowship and prayer included a hot and hearty mess-hall breakfast of creamed chip beef on toast served by Pine Run Associates. Reverend John Stark opened the event with a meaningful reminder to all about the importance of supporting those who have served, from the latest generation to the greatest generation.
