Rutherfordton Veterans Day Event
Honoring those who've served America with an early salute to veterans.
It's the second year for this weekend event in Rutherfordton.
There was live music from a children's choir, the presentation of colors, speeches, and a ceremony honoring those missing-in-action.
The day offered a time of reflection for families and those serving our country.
Kyle Hankinson, U.S. Army, "it is the best thing I've ever done, to represent and to be along with these guys here who were before us and gave us the opportunity to gather peacefully and enjoy each others company. It's an honor and a real privilege to be able to do it."
The crowd even received a special treat from international musicians from the Celtic Tenors.
