This event, hosted by the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled Veterans of America, Utah National Guard and Elks’ Lodge, was deemed the Veterans Day of Recognition.

Following the walk, family, friends and members of the community gathered at the Price City Peace Gardens for a Veterans Day ceremony. Presented by David Jelin, Commander of Post 3 of the American Legion, a number of veterans from different branches of the military took time to speak on the importance of the holiday and thank those in attendance.
