Janesville Patriotic Society encourages attendance during ceremonies
Janesville Patriotic Society President Tom Stahura tells "Your Talk Show" on WCLO some members are concerned with a lack of non-veteran attendance at some events.
Stahura says the group would also like to see more students during ceremonies. Friday's Veterans Day Ceremonies at Traxler Park in Janesville will involve more people and groups than usual, in an effort to bolster more support according to Stahura. This year is also important for Viet Nam era veterans, marking the 50th anniversary for the start of U.S. involvement. Obituaries of the 39 Rock County veterans lost during that conflict will be on display in the Traxler Park Warming House Friday morning.
The program is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. in Veterans Plaza.
