For the second year the Aurora Stake held it’s Community Veterans Day Concert at the Leadership Development Center on Buckley Air Force Base. The base has been part of the Aurora community since 1938 and makes for a great place to host a Veterans Day Concert.
There are almost 400,000 US military veterans in Colorado according to the US Census Bureau and many of them served in the Air Force and were stationed at Buckley.
In attendance were Base Commanding Officers, Community Leaders, Representatives from Aurora Fire, and friends from the Sikh faith. Gurpreet of Gurdwara Singh Sabha Colorado gave the invocation and Elder Thomas Priday of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gave the benediction.
Colorado Mormon Chorale and Orchestra, conducted by Kent Jones provided all the music.
