MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - On this Veterans Day, many gathered at the Lauderdale County Courthouse for a flag raising ceremony at its new Veterans Memorial Pavilion. There was a salute to the flag before it was raised. Then, a moment of prayer along with words of gratitude given to all veterans. The memorial plaques from the front of the courthouse were moved to this new memorial space. Plus, benches were added along with a new ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant flag pole.

For some vets, raising the flag symbolizes so much.

For others, it represents freedom.

The event was hosted by the VFW Post 12124. Grant money helped to fund this new addition to the courthouse.
