For all who served

Veterans Day is the time to honor the citizens throughout our nation's history who have selflessly served to protect our freedom.
10 a.m.: Program at Hayden City Hall Veterans Park
11 a.m.:  Program at the Warrior Veterans Memorial (pictured), trailhead of the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes, Plummer with the Coeur d'Alene Tribe
11 a.m.: Third Street Bell program at the Third Street docks Veterans Park in Coeur d'Alene.

At most area cemeteries the gravesites of veterans are marked by flags. Coeur d'Alene Memorial Gardens on north Government Way is displaying the gravesite flags as well as the moving Avenue of Flags. The dozens of full size flags are loaned by the families of late veterans, after having draped the caskets of their loved ones. Pappy Boyington Detachment 966 of the Marine Corps League oversees the flag displays at the site.
