This year’s Veterans Day Program, hosted by the Sheriff’s Office, had perhaps the biggest attendance to date! Almost 90 people were in attendance, 64 of which were veterans.

The speaker, Dr. Bill Robertson, delivered a moving speech recapping the intriguing life of World War II veteran Louis Zamperini. After introducing Zamperini’s unlikely start, Robertson discussed the pain, hardships, and inner conflict all soldiers wrestle with.
