Local veterans walk to honor those who serve our country

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Two Region 8 veterans walked from Lake City to Monette Wednesday morning to honor the men and women who serve our country.

Dick Pace and Robert Chambers are army veterans from Monette.

They started their walk on Highway 135 in Lake City carrying large American flags. Students and drivers waved as they made their way down the highway.

Both men said they wanted to honor their graduation class.

"This is just a small part for us to thank our country, to thank our communities, and to thank God for blessing us," Pace said.

Pace said the Monette class of 1967 had a total of 17 men who served in the military. He keeps in contact with them and they come back to visit northeast Arkansas often.
