The VFW Post 8870 and Auxiliary‘s Veterans Day observance will take place at the Edmonds Veterans Plaza at 11:00 a.m. on Veterans Day, Thursday, November 11.
There will be short remarks from Post officers and recognition pins distributed, including the Vietnam Veteran pin and a new lapel pin that recognizes the widows of veterans, which observes the 50th anniversary of that conflict. It is The Deceased Vietnam Veteran’s Surviving Spouse pin, for the surviving spouse at the time of death of a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period of November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location of service. The pin is displayed here, both front and back.
The Post intends this to be a fairly low key event, recognizing the continuing hazard of the COVID pandemic and urges everyone participating to come with their mask and take appropriate social distancing precautions.
