To commemorate Veterans Day 2019, the VFW Post 8189 and Auxiliary visited veterans residing at the Royal Dalton House in Sugarmill Woods to honor them.

Each received a box filled with snacks, puzzle books, playing cards and candy from "Operation Gratitude." Accompanying each box was a Veterans Day thank-you card from kids at the Rock Crusher Elementary YMCA after school program.

In all, 6 Veterans were honored for their service to our country.
