City Officials Honor Local Veterans

This Sunday is Veterans Day, but a ceremony was held Friday at the Columbus Government Center to honor them.

Mayor Wetherington and other city officials gathered at the eternal flame to honor the troops.

The community was invited to come out for a special music tribute and speeches to thank soldiers for their sacrifice...but soldiers aren't the only ones who deserve praise.

Julius Griggins, U.S. Army (Retired), "Sometimes we don't give enough praise to those families of those veterans you know that also stay on the homefront."

In honor of Veterans Day, admission to all parks and land owned by the federal department of the enterior will be free to military members and their families.
