    “Will you forget?”

    The words of Commander Ray Swanson, US Navy, pierced the hearts of those who gathered for the Veterans Day Honor Ceremony.

    “Will you forget them after today’s ceremony? Will you visit them at the veteran hospitals?” he said.

    Swanson reminded those attending the service at First Baptist Church Saturday morning that Veterans Day is not only about remembering the 2.6 million soldiers who have died, but commemorating the 23.4 million that are living among us – many of whom still serve.
