Veterans Honored at Neshoba County Fair

Neshoba County, Miss. Neshoba County fair-goers took some time out of the week-long party atmosphere to honor those who have served our country.

A ceremony at Founder's Square recognized veterans in every military branch Tuesday morning.

The focal point of the service was a marker honoring all men and women who served.

Angela Baughman, the first female department commander of the American Legion for the state of Mississippi, laid wreaths by the marker.

"They're not forgotten, and their families are not forgotten for the sacrifices they've made," said Baughman. "And some of them have made the ultimate sacrifice so we could have this freedom to do what we're doing here today."

Baughman says she hopes this service will help get the word out that veterans should be supported and their sacrifices remembered.
