TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Members of the Kansas National Guard are fanning out across the state to provide support to numerous observances to Veterans Day.

Activities began Saturday and continue Monday, including parades in Emporia, Eskridge, Leavenworth, Manhattan and Topeka.

Army National Guard soldiers and Air National Guard airmen were going to local nursing homes and assisted living centers to hand out certificates of appreciation to veterans for their service.

A ceremony was held at the Pittsburg State University Veterans Memorial Amphitheater to honor military service, including a special recognition for Father Emil Kapaun, a native of Kansas who was recently awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously for his actions during the Korean War.
