Today we would like to Honor Our Country's Veterans. Many of our current club members spoke briefly about their service to this country and also about their family members who served in WWII and other wars. It certainly makes one stop , remember and honor those who served and those who made the ultimate sacrifice. 
Many Hatboro Rotarians have served our country.  Below is a list of current members who  shared some details of their service.  Also included are details of some former Rotarians that have passed through our club in recent years.  Thank you to all who have served.
