Each Friday, a group of local citizens gather at their favorite coffee shop in Springfield to share favorite memories, camaraderie, current events and an appreciative nod of service to country. They are US veterans who collectively represent more than 230 years of service to the nation and its citizens. These veterans represent the United States Army, Marines and Air Force. They are humbled by the honor and privilege of serving in our armed forces and would do it again if afforded the opportunity. This past Friday was special as they each wore uniform items from their own history in honor of Veterans Day.
