Dedication ceremony honors veterans
ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WEAR) —
Veterans were honored Saturday at a ribbon-cutting for Appleyards Veteran's Memorial Park.
The park is at the Waterfront Rescue Mission main campus on Herman Street.
They say that up to 25 percent of the men served at the Waterfron Rescue Mission are veterans.
"We're a nation where others have paid a price that I get to come to work that I get to do what I want to do; and it wouldn't be right if we didn't honor those folks right when the walk through the door," said Waterfront Rescue Mission President Devin Simmons.
The memorial features five monuments - one for each branch of military.
