Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on Nov. 11, that honors military veterans, that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces.
A Veterans Appreciation Luncheon was held at Brown Mountain Baptist Church this past Sunday. Bud Hicks, the oldest veteran there, was given a crocheted American Flag Afghan. The flag Afghan was crocheted by Tina Wright. The flag Afghan was made with loving hands and was breath taking. The other veterans got American flag bird feeders and blue buckets of snacks. The meal of soup, sandwich, salad, dessert and drink was delicious.
