The following is from Police Chief Russell Jenkins:
Veterans Day Holiday will be celebrated on Monday, Nov. 12, 2012. Retail
establishments in Braintree will be allowed to open at noontime on Monday Nov. 12.
“In years past, various veterans organizations have requested that we not allow stores to open before noontime and we have honored their requests,” Jenkins said.
“Veteran’s Day is a day to celebrate our veterans and honor them for their many sacrifices and service to our country and I am happy to continue the Town of Braintree’s long standing tradition of noontime openings.
“This is a small sacrifice to make to honor those who have died for our freedom and those who have served or are now serving to protect our great Nation.”
