Veterans honored for service

The rain fell, sometimes beating so loudly, the veterans in the crowd strained to hear, but the rain, nor cooler temperatures didn’t deter a small crowd of veterans from gathering at schools throughout the county on Nov. 12 for Veterans Day ceremonies.

A ceremony was also held at the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery North in Williamstown.

Members of the Grant County JROTC program stood respectfully outside in the cold rain waiting to place wreaths at the base of flags for each branch of service.

The Williamstown choir sang patriotic songs as the rain continued to pour down.

Also, on Nov. 9 and Nov. 13, veterans, students and citizens paused for a few minutes to honor those who have served their country at other ceremonies in the county.
