Veterans Day in Claremont

Newly relocated from Alaska, retired Army Colonel Richard D. Anthony salutes during the playing of Taps on Sunday during the annual Veterans Day observance in Memorial Park. The brief ceremony included a flag raising ceremony by Boy Scout Troop 407, remarks from local officials, a short speech by US Navy Quartermaster Ned Mason and patriotic music from the Claremont High School marching band. During his remarks, Claremont Mayor Opanyi introduced his father in law, Colonel Anthony, who has just moved into Claremont Place with his wife Betty Lou. Mayor Nasiali also noted that his Veterans Day speech was likely his last public duty in over 16 years serving the city. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff
