Veterans Day 2018 was a chilly day, but a very special one. Thanks to our Rye City leadership, the WWI flagpole was completed in time to honor the 100th Anniversary of WWI. The pole and flag looked glorious in the crisp blue sky. And the plaques shined beautifully.
Commander Fred de Barros led the ceremony. In addition to the keynote by Maj Gen Robert Gruber, USAF (Ret.), we heard remarks by Mayor Cohn, Westchester County Executive George Latimer, NYS Assemblyman Otis and others. The music was beautiful and led by Robin Latimer, Rye Legion Auxiliary.
It was a fitting day to honor all veterans.
