With the exception of World War II years, Post 119 has served a Veterans Day Breakfast every year since 1928. That breakfast is free to all veterans and low-cost to all others thanks to the generous donations from local businesses. Click below for photos from the 2018 Veterans Day Breakfast.
Post 119 was honored to participate with the Estes Park Honor Flight committee to fund-raise and develop a Veterans Monument for Estes Park. The monument was dedicated on Veterans Day in 2017. For Veterans Day 2018, the ceremony that was planned to take place at the Veterans Monument was moved to the Legion Hall due to weather conditions.
The ceremony included a special tribute to John McCain, the American statesman, Vietnam Veteran, and former POW who died this past August.
Special recognition was given to the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, i.e. the ending, of World War I.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, Post 119 held an appreciation dinner for all Vietnam veterans and their families. Certificates and pins were presented by representatives from the Boulder Vet Center.
