Also representing our up and coming youth was Brandt Carmichael, who performed “God Bless America” outside the City Building where the parade ended with a second ceremony.
We were moved by Superior Court Judge Rick Maughmer’s words during the closing ceremony. Pointing to the youth in the crowd, he called on them to step up and be the next generation of veterans. He talked of why service is so important and why we honor those who have made the sacrifice to perform that service.
In all, we couldn’t be more proud of the community we call home.
THE ISSUE Veterans Day. OUR VIEW We are proud of the turnout to show respect for those who have served.
