Saturday saw a Veteran’s Day celebration in downtown London.
Veterans and citizens gathered around the flagpole at the Laurel County courthouse for songs and speeches and flags were handed out along with programs. Following the meeting, a parade honoring local veterans made its way from the north Kroger store back to the courthouse.
Among the veterans were Kyle Feltner and his father, Eddie Feltner. Kyle Feltner served in Iraq and Eddie Feltner served in Vietnam from 1969-1970.
“It means a whole lot of all the sacrifices the service people made for the country,” Kyle Feltner said. His father added, “[Veteran’s Day] means a whole lot to me My country don’t owe me nothin’. I still owe it.”
David Blair served from 1995 to 1997.
“People really don’t realize what you go through,” Blair said. “It’s good to see a few people come out to honor that.”
Even Sen. Albert Robinson showed up for the event.
“[Veterans] are why we can be here today without any fear,” Robinson said. “Remember the people who made that possible. We owe it to the men and women in arms.”
