Just like on 9/11 all Limestone County patriots are invited to join at the four corners of the intersection of Highway 14 and 164 in Groesbeck. We will start at 10 a.m., Thursday, Nov.11. Bring your flag and signs to remind passers bys of the meaning and importance of this day. The fighting in France stopped when the combatants signed an armistice (Truce) at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. The name Armistice Day was changed to Veterans Day in 1954. This solemn day is to honor all Veterans living and dead who served in our armed force during wartime. Take the time to look at the monument on the west side (HWY 14) of our courthouse square. It lists the hundreds of Limestone County residences who gave their lives so that each of us might live free. The price for your freedom is not free. As our society forgets this our freedom is slowly lost.
