MCC Honors Those Who Serve

Meridian, Miss. Meridian Community College celebrated veterans in a program Thursday at McCain Theatre.

The theme was Honoring Those Who Serve.

Service members from Naval Air Station Meridian and the Air National Guard participated in the program.

The program not only honored the veterans, but the families that support them.

"We want everyone to know that we honor veterans," said program director Ardra Govan. "We honor them, their families, those who serve with them, even though they may not do it physically. But when they are in harm's way, it bears on the family as well, so we want to recognize those people today."

Govan says without our veterans, it would not be possible to do the things we are able to do today.
