Gathering at Oak Dale on Veterans Day
Cox continued, “Our active duty service members are out there serving right now so that we can be here today. When a battle is over, we no longer serve in active duty but there are still many ways to serve as a veteran. Just this year alone, our local veterans groups have donated tens of thousands of dollars to help local veterans in need. They have done many other various events to raise money and give back to the community. They have donated money, time and sweat to local charities and schools and organizations that serve the community.”
Max thanked the community for their support, “Thank you all for being here today, God bless our veterans and God bless the United States of America.”
The Urbana High School marching band performed the National Anthem and Taps during the ceremony.
