Volunteers Needed for Honored Annual Veteran's Day Observance


SAN ANGELO – The public is invited to the Veterans Commemorative Ceremony at 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 11 at Fairmount Cemetery, 1120 West Avenue N. The keynote speaker will be U.S. Air Force Col. Matthew Reilman, 17th Training Wing commander. Mayor Brenda Gunter will also be participating in the ceremony.

I LOVE that is all you have as a response to your twice impeached one term president saying nasty things about veterans. I guess you support him and what he has said.

Please keep posting all those negative degrading comments for all to see.You describe yourself perfectly.

I'm not the one who supports trump, and he is the one who said those things. You even want to reelect him.
