Honor, Service & Lessons – 2021 Veteran’s Day

November 18, 2021

Dear Blowing Rock Homeowners,

Last Saturday at the American Legion Building, Blowing Rock honored our veterans.  American Legion Post 256 Commander Albert Yount and Post Adjutant Jim West hosted the event, Shirley Snyder shared how her husband and residents founded and built the American Legion Post, and Town Manager Shane Fox share the history and documents about the community commitment that led to the American Legion Building that we enjoy today.

NC Native Son, U.S. Army Major General (Retired) Charles H. Swannack gave the keynote address sharing his experience and views as a leader at the highest levels of government.

You can watch the entire service on our website at https://www.brcivic.org/videos/ or read an article in the Blowing Rocket at https://www.wataugademocrat.com/blowingrocket/news/lessons-few-civilians-receive/article_f4dc5fd0-6e1c-5cd0-8197-abe6aec429d0.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=user-share
