Veterans Day weekend, Blue Hill, Field of Flags and Film Veterans Day to be Recognized in Blue Hill, honoring Veterans for Peace
BLUE HILL – Peninsula Peace & Justice plans a Veterans Day weekend honoring Veterans for Peace. On Friday November 11, the film THE GOOD SOLDIER will be shown at 7:00 p.m. at Blue Hill Library. The documentary features veterans of World War II, the Viet Nam War, the Gulf War and Iraq. The stories of five different servicemen over a 60-year period testify to the inescapable sameness of a soldier’s singular objective.
On Saturday November 12 at 11:00, the community is invited to share in the annual taking down of the flag installation at the Iraq War Dead Memorial on Main Street. More than 6,300 flags representing US military killed in Iraq and Afghanistan will be removed from the ground as the memorial field is prepared for winter. This year Peninsula Peace & Justice dedicates the Veterans Day observance to members of Veterans for Peace, in Maine and around the nation, who work to abolish war as an instrument of national policy.
Everyone is welcome. For more information 326-4405.
