AUGUSTA,Ga (WJBF) The city of Augusta took time out to honor our Veterans
Heroes overlook was the scene for the city’s Veterans Day celebration. Former Augusta radio personality Hans Peterson was the guest speaker.
The theme, courage, service and sacrifice.
The Augusta Richmond County Historical Society sponsored the event, and organizers say Augusta would not be the city it is without veterans.
The military are here they are part of our economy they go to our schools they are here to protect us and we are so grateful to them this is the least we can do,” said Doctor Jim Garvey President of the Augusta Richmond County Historical Society.
Despite the city’s connection to Fort Gordon and the Military the commission did not make Veterans Day an official city holiday until 2013.
