Veterans honored

November 12, 2013

With prayer, song and food, Howard County gave thanks to its veterans Monday.

This year's Veteran's Day Ceremony — co-hosted by Howard College and the local VA Medical Center at Dorothy Garrett Coliseum — provided a solemn and sincere forum for Howard County residents to say thanks to those who have served in the military.

“From Bunker Hill to Baghdad, we are their beneficiaries,” ceremony emcee John Fisher said of the debt owed to our veterans.

VAMC Chief of Staff Dr. Raul Zambrano, the event's featured speaker, tried to put that debt into perspective.
