Ceremony honors veterans of the past & present

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The Lawton - Fort Sill Veterans Center took some time today to honor our veterans, past and present.

It was part of their annual Veteran's Day program. Some students from Eisenhower High School were there, helping the residents get down to the ceremony. They also handed out 'Thank You' notes.

"It's important that we continue remembering the past, present, and future veterans so that we can make sure that we honor them in the way they should be honored," said Special Events Coordinator Pamela Banks.

Veteran's Day is this Saturday, the 11th. There are several events happening that day to honor our local veterans, you can find more on them here.
