Veterans Day commemorative activities kicked off early today in Craig, but more activities are scheduled throughout the day.

This morning, Moffat County High School students heard a presentation from several members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265 and American Legion Post 62 in the school’s auditorium.

Veterans gave presentations on the history of Veterans Day, narration and folding of the flag, and an explanation of taps, among other traditions.



At 11 a.m. today, MCHS students will honor local veterans with a flag ceremony on the school’s football field, 900 Finley Lane. At 11:11 a.m., an MCHS student will play taps and veterans will perform a 21-gun salute. The events are open to the public.

Veterans will also be recognized at a lunch today from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at American Northwest Realty, 105 E. Victory Way.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.



An honorary dinner will also be hosted at 6 p.m. at the VFW, 419 E. Victory Way.

Veterans and their families are invited to participate in both events.
