Today marks one century since we have been honoring Americans who served or are serving in our Armed Forces.  It started out as Armistice Day in 1919. and was changed to Veterans Day in 1954 
TRR has on its rolls 40 Veterans, not bad out of a membership around 100.  They have served in our Country and around the world during times of peace as well as war.
Let everyone take a moment to remember their dedication and sacrifice to the United States for they are true Heroes.
