Veterans Day Ceremony to be held at Heritage Park


  One day after the official holiday, a Veterans Day Service will be held at the Veterans Wall of Honor at Heritage Park in McDonough. The special ceremony will be held on Monday, November 12, beginning at 11 a.m. 

  Now in its fourth year at the Veterans Wall of Honor, the ceremony is being hosted this year by the American Legion Post 55. Opening remarks will be given by Robbie Robinson, Commander of Post 55, and both Henry County Commission Chairman Elizabeth ‘B.J.’ Mathis and McDonough May-or Billy Copeland will provide a welcome address. Patriotic music will be provided by the Strong Rock Christian High School Band, directed by Curt Sanders, and Jim Houston of Bugles Across America, who will perform Taps. Jerry Goodson, Chaplain of American Legion Post 55 and Doug Cloud, Chaplain of American Legion Post 516 will provide the invocation and benediction, respectively.

  The Henry County High School Navy JROTC will present the colors. Robbie Robinson, Doug Cloud and Barbara Ann Davis, President of the Women’s Auxiliary Post 55, will announce memorials.

  The keynote speaker will be US Army Master Sergeant John Pierson (retired), who spent 21 years in active service helping to train our soldiers before retiring in 2001, only to be called back in following the tragic events of 9/11 to assist with training as the US Military sought to more effectively fight terrorism at home and abroad. 

  Heritage Park is located at 101 Lake Dow Road, just off Highway 81 east of McDonough. For more information, please contact Henry County Parks and Recreation at 770-288-7300.
