It was a great day to honor our veterans as the temperatures Monday were in the upper 60’s with a light breeze.  The event was held at Beebe Veterans Monument and hosted by the American legion Post 91 and was attended by about 150 people including the Beebe High School Band, AFJROTC, veterans, families and friends. American Legion Post 91 Finance Officer, Charles William Johnston, was selected as the Honored Veteran and also received a certificate for his 40 years of service to the American Legion were he has served as Post First Vice Commander, Sixth District Chaplain and Post Commander from January 2010 through June 2011.  Michael Westergren, 1st Vice Commander,  was the featured speaker at the ceremony where he spoke of dedication and sacrifice of the veterans and made special note to all the female veterans who are serving and have served their country with great honor.

A special thanks to the American Legion Post 91 for hosting this event.
