Fort Logan’s Veterans Day ceremony moved indoors

DENVER — Events are planned across Colorado to mark Veterans Day.

Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver moved its annual wreath-laying ceremony indoors today amid cold and snowy weather. Republican congressman Mike Coffman, a retired Marine, was among those who spoke at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Englewood.

Durango veterans planned a parade and, in Pueblo, residents were dedicating a bridge engraved with the names of veterans. Gov. Bill Ritter was scheduled to present the Colorado flag during that ceremony.

The American Red Cross, meanwhile, invited 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.
