Davis Veterans Day ceremony recognizes the gift of freedom

Framed by a backdrop of red autumn trees, hundreds of Davisites came together Wednesday morning to honor veterans at the annual Veterans Day ceremony at the Davis Cemetery.

Splashes of red, white and blue blanketed the cemetery grounds after troops of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts placed American flags next to each Davis veteran’s headstone.

Instead of sleeping in on his day off from school, 12-year-old Andrew Yin, a member of Boy Scout Troop 139, said he woke up early and skipped breakfast so he could get to the cemetery in time.

“It’s been nice honoring the veterans,” Yin said.
In return for their diligent work, the Scouts received a score of doughnuts from Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6949, which organized the event.
