NOVEMBER 10, 2006 - HPR recognized Veterans Day today by asking members to bring a veteran to the meeting.Ã' Veterans who attended represented the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. These honored veterans saw service in from the Second World War to the present war in Iraq.Ã' For a Rotary Club who's mission to honor the military and the military family is central, the meeting held special significance.

Sadly, the Club recognized the death this week in IraqÃ' of Sgt. Lucas White from Fort Lewis' 1st Battalion, 23rd Regiment, 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, with a moment of silence.Ã' There will be a memorial service for Sgt. White at the Fort Lewis chapel on November 16 and he will be buried at his request in Arlington National Cemetary, where he will be close to his brothers who died fighting in Afghanistan.
