Commander of the VFW post, Barry Presley, said everyone should take the time out to honor veterans on this day.

“This is Veterans Day all day long, whether they’re in your family or someone walking down the street, and you’ll find the most unlikely people who wore the uniform of this nation and service, so thank them for their service,” Presley said.

After the service, veterans gathered to pass down a wreath in remembrance of those who died and who are named on the monument outside the courthouse.
