Clay County Veterans Day Program

Spencer, IA (KICD)–Brisk weather conditions did not keep dozens from attending the Clay County Veterans Day program.

Merlin Schipper, who serves as 9th District Chaplain of the American Legion of Iowa, was the featured speaker.  Schipper says that the partial government shutdown last month hurt him more as an American than anything in his lifetime.

Schipper says the best way that the general population can show their appreciation to our veterans is to appreciate where you live.

Monday’s program took place at the Spencer Veterans Memorial located just north of Spencer Municipal Utilities.
