11-11-11 Veterans' Day

Camp Cecil Perkerson American Legion Post 186 observed Veterans’ Day at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month at Greenville United Methodist Church. The pledge to the flag and the reading of the Preamble of the Legion Constitution were followed by a rousing medley of service branch hymns played by Sally Estes.  The highlight of the program was speaker Reverend Jonathan Porter whose patriotic message of appreciation and thankfulness for our U.S. veterans left the congregation quite moved.
