Veterans and their families were honored Friday during a ceremony at Bryan County High School in Pembroke.
Retired pastor MSG Calvin Wingate was a guest speaker. He said, "All give some, but some gave all." He added that "Veterans have the power to effect change, and you have that power as well." He said we can all be a difference maker. "What you do matters."
Veteran Ernie Mitchell, who serves as director of the Pembroke Flag Committee, explained what the flags in downtown Pembroke represent and presented a memorial cross to the family of Nolan C. Geiger.
