Veterans Day 2013 in Davidson (Photos and Video)

Old Glory
A giant version of the Old Glory flew over Davidson's Main Street today in honor of Veteran's Day.  Here are some pictures from the event as well as video of today's guest speaker - Col. Quincy Collins of Concord. 

Col Collins spent 7 1/2 years as a POW in Vietnam including time in the infamous Hanoi Hilton.  For a brief glimpse of what that was like see this article covering one of Colonel Collins' previous speeches in Asheboro.  His rousing speech today begins a few minutes into the video.  (Apologies for the shaky camerawork and periodic background noise.)
