The Green Village Fire Department hosted their annual Veterans Day Remembrance Ceremony Friday morning at 11 a.m.
Janet Doherty gave the opening remarks, saying, "Millions of Americans' lives were forever altered because they donned a uniform to protect the freedoms and rights we take for granted. We owe them an eternal debt of gratitude."
Elizabeth Taylor, the youth minister from the Green Village United Methodist Church, led those gathered in prayer. Diane Hinds and Doherty each read a poem, "No, Freedom Isn't Free" and "Take a Moment to Thank a Veteran," respectively.
Veterans Day marks the end of World War I. The armistice ending the war was signed on Nov. 11, 1918.
