Honoring veterans with breakfast
The Union Daily Times - 11/19/2018
Nov. 15--UNION -- In both war and peacetime, when America has called its sons and daughters to its military service, no community has answered that call like Union County has and that's why Veterans Day is such an important day in this county.
In Union County we honor our veterans to the best of our abilities because we know that without them we would not enjoy the freedoms that we do as Americans. That's why Veterans Day is celebrated the way it is in this county with parades and ceremonies and, courtesy of the ladies of a local church, a breakfast served up for the county's veterans.
Beginning in 2015, the Ladies of Augsburg Lutheran Church and volunteers have served a Veterans Day Breakfast to the veterans of Union County. This year's breakfast was served this past Friday (November 9) in the church social hall which was decorated with American flags and other patriotic imagery.
As in past years, the ladies served up a really tasty breakfast. The veterans in attendance -- 45 in all -- enjoyed scrambled eggs, ham, grits, waffles, toast, biscuits, orange juice, coffee, and cake. They also enjoyed a time of fellowship, making an already wonderful breakfast even more delightful.
The Veterans Day Breakfast is a great tradition within the even greater tradition of Union County honoring its sons and daughters who have and do wear the uniforms of the armed forces of America in defense of this great nation and the freedom of its people. They are great traditions and our hope is that as long as there are sons and daughters of Union County who answer their nation's call to duty that Union County remembers its duty and honors them with ceremonies, parades, and that very special breakfast.
