Coronado Lodge 441 celebrated Veterans Day to honor all veterans of the armed services, by exemplifying a Table Lodge, complete with the seven traditional toasts.The orders for toasting, followed by a battery of 3x3 and 'Vivat' given thrice.

Table Masters were led by Bro. Dave Bean, [Capt USN Ret] and Bro. Caloy Buzon, [SC, Capt USN Ret.] and candidate was Robert B Catre, [HM2, USN] of Southwest Lodge #283, accompanied by their officers. Fines galore for all procedural infractions!

Retired and active duty personnel wore their uniforms, whether they fitted or not. It is also a day to be proud that we are citizens of a nation made great by the sacrifices and dedication of similar personnel who have served in the past, present and future and who honorably served their country.
