Columbus community comes together to honor its veterans
Airman 1st Class Brianna Brown, 14th Flying Training Wing Honor guardsman, salutes the flag during the presentation of Colors at the 2015 Veterans Day Ceremony Nov. 7 in Columbus, Mississippi. During the ceremony, Alice Stallworth Lancaster, Regent of the Bernard Romans Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution, read 22 names of those who did not return and who are listed on the right plaque of the monument. Afterward Col. John Nichols, 14th Flying Training Wing Commander, spoke on what Veterans Day meant to him before he laid a wreath on the memorial and offered a salute to close the day’s event with Harry Sanders, Lowndes County Board of Supervisors President, and Vice Columbus Mayor Gene Taylor.
