GRANT COUNTY: Several activities planned for veterans

Veteran’s Day this year, just as it is every year, will be November 11th. Grant County Veteran Services Officer Katee Hoffman said it’s a time to honor our living men and women of past and present military service:

“Whether it’s war time or peace time—if you served, you’re a veteran. As long as you do not have a dishonorable discharge—whether you are National Guard; whether you’re a Reserve; whether you’re Army; whether you’re a Marine, you’re a veteran.”

On Monday, veterans will be treated to a free meal at both the Squeeze-in and Outpost restaurants in John Day. Find Hoffman’s full list of veteran’s activities below:
