Veterans gathered at Kruse Village Monday to share memories and each other’s company before Veterans Day on Nov. 11.

Some men shared stories of serving in the National Guard and attending meetings. One man worked on a hospital ship and recalled being the only one armed. There were smiles all around and a shared appreciation of what the other men had done to serve their country.
