Veterans of the Past, Present and Future Honored in Carbon County


The Price City Peace Gardens were filled with members of the community on Monday morning as the annual Veterans Day ceremony commenced. Led by David Jelin, American Legion Post #3 Commander, the day began with the Pledge of Allegiance and was followed by the National Anthem, sang by Carbon High Choral Director Arthella Williams.

Jelin took time to speak on being a veteran and all those who have served, are currently serving and will serve in the future. A moment of silence was held for those that have passed or went missing in action. He then welcomed others to the stage to speak on what it means to be a veteran, give facts about the American flag and more.

A three-shot volley then took place. Jelin welcomed all that were in attendance to stay and chat with a veteran about their stories while enjoying delicious food provided by Dominion Energy. This food was free for veterans and $5 for citizens.

Funds raised from the lunch will help fund scholarships for local veterans at USU Eastern.
