Marines, veterans celebrated today at the post office ceremony in Antigo
space
Veterans were celebrated, especially those who served in the Marine Corps, today at the Antigo Post Office at two ceremonies.

Postmaster John Szigat, who served in the Marine Corps, was the host for the two programs.

The first was an observance of Armistice Day, which actually arrives on Monday, marking the close of World War I. There was a big crowd on hand for the flag raising, “Taps” and remarks by Szigat as the flag was being prepared to be raised.

After vocal musical selections, the program moved to the interior of the post office where the ceremony shifted to an observance of the Marine Corps founding in 1775, a tradition on Nov. 8.

The oldest Marine attending the ceremony, John Krajewski cut the ceremonial cake with the Marine Corps sword, and presented a piece to the youngstert member of the corps at the event, Josh Rojosl, a member of the Langlade County Sheriff's Department.

Szigat explained a brief history of the corps, from the earliest days of the nation were saying they were noted for their spirit of being fierce in the hand-to-hand combat of the day.

Szigat said the ceremonies were very important events designed to offer an honor to anyone who served in the military and the Marine Corps and their contributions to the nation.
