Local Veterans Day Ceremony

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT)-- Veterans were honored on Nov. 11 all across Western Colorado including at the Western Slope Vietnam Memorial Park in Fruita.

Over a hundred people came out to show their support and honor those who have fought for our country.

"Every veteran that has joined the military basically signed away his life to protect this country, and several did not get to come home and we need to honor those people,” says Patriot Guard Rider Wayne Roberts.

According to the most recent census, there are over 18 million veterans in the United States.
