The local post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars led a ceremony Friday to honor the nation’s veterans and those currently serving the United States overseas and at home.

Civil Air Patrol cadets from the Tahoe Truckee Composite Squadron started the ceremony by presenting the colors.

VFW Post Cmdr. Ken Meyer recited a Veterans Day prayer for the group of 40 or so attendees, including Truckee police officers, veterans and families of those who are serving in the military.

Meyer announced the Veterans Association of Truckee/North Tahoe, a local veterans’ group that is in the formative stages. For more information on the association, Dennis Cook call 587-7662.

Nov. 11 is the anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I – which was dubbed “the war to end all wars” – in 1918.
