Veterans…

phRGVeterans lined up at MESParkview Elementary School students in Rangely invited veterans to their weekly assembly on Nov. 10 in honor of last week’s Veterans Day celebrations. Students introduced the individuals they invited, followed by veterans naming their branch, how long they served and duties performed during their tenure. Military members from World War II to those currently in service attended the event.

Two Rangely veterans and members of the Rangely Elks Lodge were among the hundreds of people who attended the Veterans Day dedication of the Rangely memorial to all county veterans, titled “Sacrifice and Resolution.” Above are, from left, Elks past Exalted Ruler Tink Wilson and current Exalted Ruler Don Reed.

Several hundred Rangely residents, veterans and visitors attended the Veterans Day dedication of the memorial to all veterans from Rio Blanco County. The sculpture, titled “Sacrifice and Resolution,” was created by Meeker’s John Kobald. It and the identical sculpture in Meeker became a reality behind the drive of the Meeker and Rangely Veterans of Foreign Wars posts.
