The City of Clinton will honor those who have served the United States Armed Forces with a special Veterans Day ceremony on Wednesday, November 11, at 11:00 a.m. in Vance Park, 198 W. Florida St. in Clinton.
Guest speakers will include Patrick Elswick, USMC; and Donald McLean, COL, U.S. Army (Ret.). The City will also pay tribute to veterans of all wars as part of the event.
