Leon County Honors Its Veterans

By  | 

Hundreds of people turned out to remember the more than 2,000 people from Leon county who have lost their lives serving our country.

After three long years of hard work, the county dedicated their Veteran's Memorial in Centerville early Monday morning.

State and federal dignitaries were present for the ceremony, including State Senator Steve Ogden.

The center of the monument included granite made of the same quarry as the Vietnam Wall in Washington D.C., and a soaring eagle statue.

The event included appearances by the Ross Volunteers, and members of the Centerville High School Band.

Visitors were able to take home a pencil rubbing of their loved ones name inscribed on the memorial wall.
