HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT)- Today is Veterans Day and many gathered all over the country to honor our veterans.
Folks here in Perry County also celebrated those that fought.
Veterans were honored by family members, state and county leaders, and even elementary school students at the Eastern Kentucky Veterans Center.
Folks say today is a great reminder of the sacrifice that was made for our freedom in this country.
"It's an important day,” said Chris Fugate. “Everyday should be Veterans Day, really, because they pay a price today even after years of service. They’re still here paying a price today and so we owe them a debt of gratitude for what they’ve done.”
