VFW Post 5189 presents Michael Fry as guest speaker for the Vicksburg Veteran’s Day program beginning at 11 a.m. on November 10, 2023 at Sunset Lake Park.
Fry is a retired Marine staff sergeant. He was discharged in September 2018 after more than 13 years of service.
The program will be sponsored by the Village of Vicksburg and VFW Post 5189, with assistance from Scout Troop 251. The ceremony will begin with the Vicksburg High School Chamber Singers singing the national anthem. Troop 251 will present the colors of each armed forces unit to each unit’s fight song. Fifth grade students from Sunset Lake Elementary will also attend, and while the audience recites the Pledge of Allegiance, the students will sign the words, something they have practiced in class. The program will end with the rifle squad firing a three-shot volley. Two members of the Vicksburg High School Band will play Taps.
