Tickets can be reserved now for the 8th annual Veterans Day Breakfast and Ceremony, Friday morning, Nov. 11, at the Ohio Army National Guard’s Delaware Readiness Center.

This is the first year that the event, which honors Delaware County military veterans, will take place at the Readiness Center, located at 1120 S. Houk Road, next to the Delaware YMCA.

Veterans and active military personnel in the county are invited to attend a complimentary breakfast, starting 8:30 a.m. Guests can purchase advance tickets for the breakfast at $8 per person. Seating is limited, so reservations are a must.

All attendees will need to call 740-833-2011 and leave a message. The call will be returned to process the reservation.

The breakfast is followed by a commemorative ceremony and awards presentation at 9:45 a.m. This year’s event honors the rich history and the many contributions of The National Guard of the United States. This reserve military force has played an integral role in protecting U.S. citizens both at home and abroad since its formation in 1933.

The Outstanding Veteran Award also will be presented at this year’s event, with music provided by the Buckeye Valley Alumni Band.
