Devils Lake Honors Veterans

It's important for people of all ages to honor veterans. That was one of the main messages at the memorial building in Devils Lake today, as people packed the room to respect Veterans past and present.

There were lots of music, stories, and pride for our country's service men and women.

The Devils Lake Elks Band entertained people as they awaited the presentation of colors.

The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps Drill Team also showed off their skills, and Public Service Commissioner and Retired Marine Brian Kalk gave the Veterans Day address.

Those who attended were of all ages and Kalk says that's important.

"The community I think benefits from all ages being involved because when our military men and women deploy. It's the member, the spouse, the community, they're all responsible for helping them out," explained Kalk.

Kalk says he's impressed with the turn-out of the younger generation.

The days activities will finish up tonight with a supper and a dance.
