Veteran's Day Celebrations

By Kelly Bledsoe

To all veterans of all branches: Thank you for your sacrifice, your bravery, and the example you set for us all. In short, thank you for your service!

Last Wednesday, the Town of Denton Parks and recreation board invited a member from each branch of our military service to participate in a flag ceremony honoring all of our local Veterans.


Bruce Peck represented the Army, Clay Parker represented the Navy, Randy Cook the Airforce, Paul Mitchell the Marines, Cody Smith the Coast Guard, while former Air Force veteran John Fuller carried our country’s flag, and Mayor Larry Ward, also a marine Veteran was on hand to thank our service men and woman on behalf of the Town of Denton.

SDHS drum captain, Cameron Hill played his snare during the tribute. The ceremony was filmed and aired live on Denton Parks and Recreation Facebook. We hope you will take a moment to view the tribute and to say Thank You to all of our Veterans.

Commissioner Barbara Hogan and the Town of Denton continued the celebration of Veterans by hosting a free luncheon for veterans at Larry Furr presents Southern Theater and Event Center.

With complete gratitude we honor all current and former members of the Armed Services. Our country’s greatness is built on the foundation of your courage and sacrifice. Thank you!
