Veteran’s Day at Aurora Sportsman’s Club

Veteran’s Day at Aurora Sportsman’s Club

Sgt Grit,
I'm including a couple of photos from our Veterans Day ceremony at the Aurora Sportsman's Club in Illinois- each year the Civilian Marksmanship Team gets together and stages this event- everyone wears the uniform of their time in service- as we marched past some older vets, they saluted our group and I have to tell you it brought tears to my eyes.

I was a Cold War Marine, an avionicsman in helicopters, so when people ask me about being a Marine, I let them know I carried a tool box, and then bark like a true Devil Dog.

I'm glad to see that our country now embraces our men and women in uniform.

Sgt of Marines
