Veterans Day: A tribute to service

TRI-COUNTY AREA—Veterans Day, Thursday, Nov. 11, gives residents a chance to honor the work and sacrifice made by our veterans.
It is an official holiday reserved for honoring all veterans of the U.S. In support of the area veterans, there are several events planned.
A Veterans Day ceremony will be held at St. Michael’s School, 214 Keuka St., Penn Yan, Nov. 11. It starts at 11 a.m.
The Bath VA Medical Center will host a musical performance Nov. 11, featuring Freedom Village. It is open and free to veterans, family members, and the community. The program starts at 1 p.m. in the Recreation Building’s auditorium.
For more, call VA Voluntary Services at 607-664-4965 or 607-664-4771.
The Veterans Organizations of Schuyler County will also hold a service Thursday, in front of the county courthouse in Watkins Glen. It will start at 11 a.m., followed by a meal at the Watkins Glen VFW. Tony Specchio said County Judge J.C. Argetsinger would be speaking. He said Argetsinger served in the army infantry from 1967 to 1969.
“It’s a great honor to be doing this, to see the town come out (for Veterans Day),” said Specchio. “We do it for love of the country.”
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the event started with President Woodrow Wilson proclaiming Nov. 11 as Armistice Day, in 1919. It wasn’t until 1954 that Nov. 11 was named specifically to honor all U.S. veterans.
