To commemorate Veterans Day 2019, the VFW Post 8189 and Auxiliary visited veterans residing at the Sugarmill Manor in Homosassa 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, 7 Veterans were honored for their service.
