Laurel Veterans Memorial Program attracts hundreds

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of people gathered at the Laurel Veterans Memorial Museum to honor those who fought and are presently defending the freedom of Americans.

General Jeff Hammond, Director of Veterans Affairs at the University of Southern Mississippi made the keynote address at the celebration.

"It's important because it is at the root of who we are," said Hammond. "A nation that stands for democratic values, for freedom and a clear recognition, which is sometimes lost is that freedom is not free."

Those who attended the ceremony are present and former members of the Army Reserve, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard.
