Marian Nelson, RHA President - Welcome to Hilbig Park on behalf of RHA and thank you for attending this recognition of our service men and women. Veterans Day is an American Holiday celebrated to honor all American veterans, both living and dead. On November 11 each year, we especially thank living veterans for dedicated and loyal service to their country. We want to make sure they know that we deeply appreciate the sacrifices they have made in their lives to keep our country free.

RHA thanks Peter Gessner for making the arrangements and we are honored and most appreciative to have The Bastrop County Honor Guard with us today to pay tribute to the following men from the Rockne community who were killed in action.
