AMVETS Post 101 and the Halifax Resolves Chapter came together to honor our veterans on Sunday November 8th. The Freedom Freewill Baptist Church in Weldon, NC requested a ceremony honoring veterans during their Sunday morning service. The Combined NC SAR Color Guard posted the colors. AMVETS Post 101 conducted the ceremony as Compatriots Ken Wilson and Ron Jones stood vigil at the Missing Man table.

Following the ceremony, The Halifax Resolves Chapter hosted a lunch at Ralph’s BBQ in Weldon for the color guard and were joined by members of the Sons of the Revolution. Well fed, they departed to lead the March of Patriots Veterans Day Parade in Roanoke Rapids.
