Honoring our veterans on the Space Coast

Residents gathered Veterans Day to honor those who served.

Crowds gathered at the Brevard Veterans Memorial Center on Veterans Day to honor those who served. Veterans from every military branch along with family members were present for the morning ceremony.

Veterans service organizations and associations, including the Combat Veterans Association, Naval Sea Cadets, JROTC cadets from Merritt Island High School and others also were participants. The Naval Ordnance Unit participated in the ceremonies with the 21-gun volley.

A nine-year tradition started at Duran Golf Club continued Veterans Day. Jerry McAnulty, a retired Air Force chief, and a few close military friends greeted foursomes on the 18th green by removing, then posting the pin which has the U.S. flag at the top.
