Veterans Day services in Webster City, Iowa

Webster City, IA

American Legion Post 191 went to the Webster City Middle School. We had 10 veterans, ranging from the Korean War to the Persian Gulf War visiting the Webster City Middle School eighth grade class throughout the day. They were talking about their time in the service and how things has changed since then.

The class had many questions as the veterans were happy to answer. The middle school TV studio recorded some of the Veterans Day activities which was aired at the school and also on Facebook for others could watch.

At 10:40 a.m., Veterans Day services for the community was held in the school gym due to the snowy weather. Our guest speaker was Pat Powers from KQWC radio from Webster City. He shared a brief history on how Veterans Day was originated and what it means to us today.

Later that day, American Legion Post 191 held a soup supper for the community and a good turnout.
