Among those projects is the Veterans Day live flag raising at the Jewish Community Center on November 11.  The public was invited. The ceremony, which honors veterans worldwide, was held at 11:00 a.m. at the JCC flagpoles on the Dell Jewish Community Campus, and it featured Post 757’s honor guard and chaplain.  A special tribute was rendered to America’s men and women who served in the past and are now serving worldwide. ■
