Community to honor local veterans


By Brianna Stephens
Advocate Staff writer

American Legion Post 22 commander George Adams encourages the community to thank and celebrate veterans this Veterans Day.

The American Legion will host its annual Veterans Day service at 11 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, in front of the courthouse.

“I definitely encourage the public to come out and make every day Veterans Day,” Adams said. “Thank a veteran for their service, especially the older generations because that really means a lot to them.”

Adams will serve as the master of ceremony and former chief of police David Charles will serve as this year’s featured speaker for the program.
A 21 gun salute will also be observed during the service.

During his time as legion commander, Adams said he is proud of local veterans and what they have accomplished.

“We live in a great community,” Adams said. “We have great support here.”
