A free Veterans Day salute will feature educational displays on military history, the armed services and much more.

The displays will be set up from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday at the Nassau Humane Society’s Second Chance resale store. Commander Kate Warren Giffin, a retired Navy nurse, organizes the salute to veterans annually.
There are tributes to military women, African-American service members, Native Americans’ military service, and the U.S. Merchant Marine. Befitting a salute from a Humane Society, there’s also a display honoring military working dogs.
The salute includes articles, photographs and artwork, books, vintage magazine covers, and personal memorabilia from veterans and their families, including uniforms and medals. Cmdr. Giffin will be at the store throughout the day to provide background and answer questions.

New this year will be displays covering D-Day. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the crucial Battle of Normandy. Cdr. Giffin and her husband visited Normandy this past June and took part in some of the anniversary commemorations.

Second Chance is located at 1002 S. 14th St. in Fernandina Beach. All proceeds from the store benefit the Nassau Humane Society.

    Of course all of this happened yesterday. Not sure how long the Humane Society will keep the exhibits on display.
    It was a pleasure to visit 2nd Chance and chat with Kate and hear additional history & information on all the wonderful exhibits. And over in the Clothes Closet was Kate’s Dress White Uniform with all her decorations for service. Thanks to all the Vets for their service to our Country.

    A very nice recognition of our Veterans on their Day.
