Veterans, families tell their stories at Memorial Park in Omaha
Washington, November 12, 2021
Sometimes soldiers come home with stories to tell. For those who have fallen, it is their loved ones who must share their stories.
That was a theme Thursday at Omaha’s signature Veterans Day commemoration, the American Legion Post No. 1’s annual event at the Memorial Park amphitheater — one of several events held across the Midlands on Thursday.
About 125 people attended the ceremony on the chilly, windswept hilltop, including Mayor Jean Stothert, Rep. Don Bacon and three members of the Omaha City Council.
