Honoring two veterans

On Wednesday, the Eagan Rotary Noon Club and the Eagan Rotary Kick-Start Club and many guests met at the Lost Spur Golf Club to honor two local veterans during the annual veterans recognition lunch meeting. Corporal Al Jaeger served with the US Army 1944 - 1946 WWII in Italy. Captain Chuck Burin flew as a pilot with the Marine Corps 1963 - 1974 in Vietnam. Both spoke about their service and afterwards each received a plaque from Eagan Rotary and a check to his favorite charity. The Eagan Men's Chorus sang patriotic songs and Rotarian John Curlee closed the meeting by playing "Taps" on his trumpet.
