My husband, a Vietnam Veteran, asked me if there was anything going on this year in 29 Palms for Veteran’s Day. I searched the newspapers for the last three weeks and there wasn’t any mention of anything going on in 29 Palms. What a disappointment that there was nothing going on in town at all, only what businesses were being closed for the day. Since we have mostly Veterans in town and those who retired here, why wasn’t there some kind of a gathering to remember Veterans, both past and present here?
My husband went into town to get this week’s paper and the only thing going on for Veteran’s Day was in Yucca Valley. No reason why Veteran’s in 29 Palms should have to go to Yucca Valley when we have a Military town here and there should have been a Veteran’s Day event in our own town. For whatever reason why Veteran’s Day was not being ‘remembered’ in 29 Palms this year, I find it disrespectful to all Veteran’s who live in 29 Palms.
UPDATE (11/13/2010): Upon writing this article, I didn’t know Veteran’s Day was being rotated between Yucca Valley and 29 Palms. ~KK~
