Idaho Farm Bureau held the 7th Annual Salute to Veterans on Friday, November 10.
The “Salute” is a prelude to the longstanding traditions that local Veterans Service Organizations have carried out each year on Veterans Day. It’s Farm Bureau's way of saying “thank you” to our Pocatello-area veterans for their service to our country.
The program included presentation of the colors, a slideshow, a luncheon and a speech from Idaho Supreme Court Justice Dan Eismann.
Guest Speaker: The Honorable Dan Eismann
Caldwell native Dan Eismann left his studies at the University of Idaho in 1967 to enlist in the United States Army. He served two consecutive tours of duty in Vietnam where, as a crew chief/door gunner on a Huey gunship, he was awarded two purple hearts for being wounded in combat and three medals for heroism.
After an honorable discharge, he returned to the University of Idaho where he earned his undergraduate and law degrees. The Honorable Dan Eismann was elected by the people of Idaho to the Idaho Supreme Court in 2000.
