ELDRED, NY — There were two stories at Highland’s Veterans Day ceremonies, one that was traditional and one that required some search.

Veteran’s Day is a time to honor those who have fought for our freedom, a time to revere the memory of what they have done. What’s more, it is a time to show patriotic spirit alongside the brave men and women who are still fighting to preserve that freedom. In Beach Lake, PA, there’s a man who’s got a business doing just that, all year long.
