Ceremony held at the ECA maintained flag...We conduct flag ceremonies on Memorial Day, 9/11 and Veterans Day, as well as when authorized by the President of the United States. Want to help out at future flag ceremonies? Let me know. Jac Charlier at jac.charlier@gmail.com

Veterans were honored Saturday during a special ceremony where some of their names were called in gratitude to their service to the nation.

People gathered at the base of the Edgebrook flag, located at the intersection of Lehigh, Devon and Caldwell avenues near several towns, including Niles. One by one, friends and family of living and fallen soldiers, from all branches of the U.S. military, called out names in honor of Veterans Day.

The solemn military tune "Taps" was played as Jac Charlier, who helped organize the event, lowered the flag to half-staff. The hour-long ceremony included several military-related readings, and acknowledgment of family members, friends and others in the community who support veterans.

The idea of officially commemorating war soldiers was first established following World War I, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website. But after the second world war, the national legislation was changed and the current version of Veterans Day was enacted. On Oct. 8, 1954, Dwight Eisenhower became the nation's first president to issue a Veterans Day Proclamation.

"Soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen are part of an unbroken chain of brave patriots who have served our country with honor and made tremendous sacrifices so that we may live free," President Barack Obama wrote in his final Veterans Day proclamation. "On Veterans Day, we salute the women and men who have proudly worn the uniform of the United States of America and the families who have served alongside them, and we affirm our sacred duty as citizens to express our enduring gratitude, both in words and in actions, for their service."

    Beachwood Nation Has Lost A Good One: Remembering Steve Ediger
