On Thursday, Nov. 11, the American Legion Carl Douglas Post hosted its annual breakfast at the Odd Fellows Hall, followed by a ceremony at the Veterans Memorial coordinated by the Estacada Area Support Our Troops Foundation.

Speakers included retired U.S. Air Force major general and Estacada High School graduate Randall Ogden, Rita Perry and John Neider from the Estacada Area Support Our Troops, and Flynn Phillips from the American Legion.

Estacada resident Tony Long-Drew sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "Amazing Grace."
