McDowell community celebrates Veterans' Day with ceremony
KIMBALL, W. Va (WVVA)-- As people across the area celebrated Veterans Day, people in McDowell county dedicated the whole day to their festivities.
Including a ceremony and dinner at the McDowell County Visitor and Veterans Center in Kimball.
Community members Congressman Nick Rahall, and more than 25 vets came to honor our nation's heroes.
They say this is one example of McDowell County's incredible patriotism.
"We ask them to go fight for us, and often times they come back and they're thrown to the side," said Manuel Horeluk, President of the Visitor and Veterans Center. "But we didn't want that to happen in McDowell County. We wanted to show our veterans that they're number 1.
This is the 7th annual Veterans Day program at the center, which serves vets year-round.
