Happy Veterans Day, Chenango County — and thank you to all who served!

• Today was pretty much all Veterans Day, all the time … On Page 1, Brian Golden visited Otselic Valley for their annual program at Georgetown Elementary (and managed to find his way back home!) and Melissa Stagnaro made her annual pilgrimage to the Veterans’ Home in Oxford to profile some of their residents – the two featured in today’s paper both had interesting stories to tell, and were both sharp and engaging.

• In the back of section 1, we had three full pages of the “Our Heroes” campaign we did, in which businesses and private parties congratulated those who’ve served our country. As a bonus, they’re all on our Facebook page too, where you can add your own comments and congratulations.

• Frank Speziale and the ES crew attended Vets’ Day ceremonies in Norwich at the Eleventh Hour, and I’ve posted a couple of Tyler Murphy’s video snippets on our Facebook page. Look for a photo gallery to come, too.
