Pahrump, NV Veterans Day Ceremony
A cool overcast morning at the VFW Post 10054, the gathering of veterans, family and friends for the Veterans Day Ceremony. The list of guest speakers stepped to the podium and gave their orations, followed by a ceremonial of the posting 'Old Glory' by the local Jr. ROTC, the playing of "Taps" and closing prayer. A pig roast was made available to all that attended the ceremony afterwards. What a great way in 'Remembering Our Veterans' on this special day.

In 2004 Harbor Homes Inc. began operating a program geared specifically to honorably discharged homeless veterans called Veterans FIRST. Funded by a grant from the Veterans Administration, the Veterans FIRST program provides housing and support services for up to twenty four months to aid veterans in getting their lives back on track. Over 100 veterans have benifited from the program and moved on to independent living. This new facility, is named in honor of advocate and distinguished veteran Griffin Dalianis. The building will ensure that the sacrifices that our veterans make to protect freedom are not forgotten. Within the facility an Honor Wall will be created to pay tribute to the brave men and women who have honorably served our country. Bricks can be purchased and inscribed to include the name and branch of of the honored veteran.
