Veterans Honor Standout Citizens, Organizations

By  | 

Meridian, Miss. Local veterans honored those who continue to support them.

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post Number 12124 hosted its second annual awards banquet at First Christian Church in Meridian on Saturday. Awards were handed out to various agencies in the community to recognize the difference they make in the lives of veterans and the community as a whole. VFW Post 12124 says its mission is to recognize those from all wars.

"From World War I, World War II, Korean War, up through the current crises and not only the veterans, but the families that support those men and women," Curt Goldacker says.

Newscenter 11's Deana Day and Will Harkins were on hand to accept awards given to WTOK for our support of the veterans.
