Veterans honored in Fullerton

In a solemn, brief ceremony, Fullerton American Legion Post 367 paid honor to Whitehall veterans on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

In his brief remarks, Post Commander John Treiber thanked those residents who attended, his fellow veterans who participated in the ceremony in uniform and those veterans present but not in uniform.

A wreath was laid at the services memorial by Richard Glabish, a retired 30-year veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard.

The honor guard members fired their weapons to pay tribute to the veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice serving freedom and democracy.

Bugler veteran Bob Sedlock played taps.

The ceremony took place on the Post grounds, 609 Fullerton Ave. Numerous drivers passing by sounded their horns out of respect for the ceremony. Some passers-by even rolled down their car windows to say thank you to the veterans present.
