Veterans stand for flags

By Chrysta Carroll

ELIZABETHTOWN — Veterans from the local VFW, DAV and American Legion, as well as county leaders, gathered at the National Guard Armory on Tuesday morning to dedicate new flagpoles.

County Commissioner Charles Ray Peterson said, “We’re all so grateful to all of you for your service and know that you don’t get enough credit for what you do. Thank you to all of you.”

Veteran Toji King inspired men and women present to be united.

“Look who all is represented here today and think what we could accomplish if we all worked together,” he encouraged.
