Evanston paid homage to veterans in a ceremony at Fountain Square on Nov. 11. In keeping with the time-honored traditions, there were non-denominational reflections, singing and remarks by the leaders of local veterans groups. McGaw YMCA preschool students and Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts participated. Vietnam Army veteran Morris Robinson and Korean War Air Force veteran Bill Logan place a wreath and salute the flag. Hank Kmieciak (far right, veteran of the Korean War) sings “God Bless America,” as Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl, Congressman Jan Schakowsky and former Mayor Lorraine Morton sing along.
