The Milford American Legion began the string of local ceremonies Thursday with a visit to the Okoboji Elementary School. The Milford post had also hosted a memorial on Nov. 6 for the 13 U.S. servicemen killed during the attack on Afghanistan's Kabul airport. The area's second Veterans Day program got underway as the Spirit Lake American Legion and the John W. Kidd VFW helped recognize veterans at 9 a.m. Nov. 11 in the Sami Bedell Center for the Performing Arts. The Lake Park American Legion welcomed the public to its program at 12:55 p.m. Thursday in the Harris-Lake Park Middle School/High School gymnasium.
