Wreath-laying, fly-over to mark Vets Day in Denver

DENVER (AP) – Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver will observe Veterans Day with a wreath-laying and a fly-over by the Colorado Air National Guard.

The observance starts at 11 a.m. Thursday.

Republican congressman Mike Coffman, a retired Marine, and Army Reserves Maj. Gen. Steven Best will speak.

Gov. Bill Ritter will be in Pueblo, where a bridge engraved with the names of veterans will be dedicated at the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk.

The Red Cross, meanwhile, is inviting people to sign a thank you banner for members of the military from 11:30 to 1 p.m. on the 16th Street Mall at Curtis Street in Denver. It will be used at National Guard homecomings and military events.

Veterans and active duty military members will also get free coffee.
