Last week the American Legion descended on Harrisburg in commemoration of Veteran’s Day. A short event – that lasted approximately 10 minutes – was held in the city for the fallen soldiers. It especially commemorated the soldiers who had fought during the war from Harrisburg.
Teresa Bartimus-Pankey (a.k.a. ‘Mama T.’) sang the National Anthem at the event. Thereafter the Pledge of Allegiance was recited by all in attendance, led by one of the many Boy Scouts who graced the event. Next came a prayer recited by all, and that was followed by a short, moving speech presented by the Rev. Lambert, Albert Parlich. He thanked all those who had served and were serving in the military. The ceremony ended with a free spaghetti lunch that was held at the legion.
