Boyne City Hosts Veteran Appreciation Day

Today Boyne City’s American Legion post held a Veterans Appreciation Day.

They had everything from old uniforms to rare weapons on display.

Area schools dropped by and the kids loved playing around the military vehicles.

Veterans say its an important day to teach younger generations about the past.

Gerald Evans, a veteran, said, “the main purpose is to teach kids that freedoms not free and these people have maintained our freedom and this is what they used to do that job.”

They have been hosting the appreciation days for years, and hope their open house will draw more interest in veterans and history
