Senior Center Celebrates Veterans Day

Eureka, Ca., (KIEM)- Tomorrow is Veterans Day, but in early recognition of those who’ve served, the Eureka Senior Resource Center welcomed the Mad River Honor guard this morning, to a celebration of service event.

“A young man or women gives a portion of his or her life to the country. He or she surrenders a lot of freedom that they have.” Luo Agliolo, a member of the honor guard explains.  “They have to abide by rules that they wouldn’t normally have and they want to serve their country. So this is an opportunity to thank them. The older I get, the more I have such honor for veterans. Not because I am one. Because Knowing what some did and that some gave the ultimate sacrifice, they died…what else can you give?”

Agliolo read a poem explaining the meaning behind all thirteen ceremonial folds of the American Flag during the Veteran’s Day Program.
