Veterans Day in Groveport
Dr. Dana Robinson-Street, Lt. U.S. Navy, gave the dedication address at the Veterans Day ceremony in Groveport’s Veterans Park on Nov. 11. Robinson-Street said Veterans Day is the most important day of the year and added, “Veterans Day is every day.” She said the U.S. military is the “finest in the world” and she urged citizens to support the country’s service men and women. “The military makes up less than 1 percent of society, but we have moved mountains,” said Robinson-Street. “Without veterans our lives would not be the same.”
Members of American Legion Robert Dutro Post 486 raised the flags at the start of the ceremony.
Vocalist Terri Christensen sang “The National Anthem,” “God Bless America,” and “Armed Forces Medley.”
The Groveport Police Department Honor Guard, led by Honor Guard Commander Sgt. Josh Short, fired a three volley salute near the end of the ceremony.
Bagpiper Lt. Shane Ronan, U.S. Army, played “Amazing Grace” as he solemnly walked away from Veterans Park to end the ceremony as the last notes of the song blended with the wind.
