Danville, VA-- Hundreds gathered at the Veterans Memorial at Dan Daniel Memorial Park in Danville on Saturday morning.
The Danville Area Veterans Council held their annual Veterans Day ceremony. Junior ROTC members from area High Schools participated. Also participating were the three Danville American Legion Posts, as well as the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 19.
Korean War Veteran Davis Newman was the keynote speaker, and says it was the least they could do.
"You know when you think of it there are people living free today all around this world because of the sacrifice the American Veterans have made," said Newman.
Danville will also have their annual Veterans Day parade downtown tomorrow afternoon starting on Main Street at 2:30 p.m.
