NewsPlus Archives: The VFW Post 9415 Veterans Ceremony from 2022

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9415 in Phelan welcomes the Tri-Community to attend their Veterans Day Ceremony on November 11, 2023, beginning at 11 a.m. with a flag-raising ceremony by Boy Scout Troop #351. The Serrano Choir will perform a Patriotic medley, and a Flag Retirement Ceremony by the Boy Scouts will also take place, followed by a Potluck Lunch. Everyone is invited. If anyone has a flag that is ready for retirement, it can be dropped off anytime at the Veterans Post Flag Depository–an old mailbox located near Sgt. Striker in front of the VFW building.

The Boy Scouts hold a Flag Retirement Ceremony on Memorial Day and Veterans Day each year. If you haven’t had a chance to witness the ceremony, it is well worth taking the time to be a part of this solemn ceremony.

The VFW will be in front of Stater Bros the weekend of Veterans Day, November 10, 11, and 12, with the Poppy Distribution. Have you wondered why the VFW Auxiliary does this? The poppy is a symbol of the sacrifices our military has made. “In Flanders Fields” is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician Lt. Col. John McCrae. He was inspired to write it on May 3, 1915, after presiding over the funeral of friend and fellow soldier Alexis Helmer, who died during the Second Battle of Ypres in Belgium. The poppy became a symbol of the sacrifice of lives in war and represented the hope that none had died in vain.
