Veteran's Day recognition in Hampton

HAMPTON, Ga. -- Three years ago, a small group of Hamptonians decided to commemmorate the town's deceased veterans by displaying crosses with the names of the soldiers and the wars in which they fought.

The display has now reached over 170 markers, complete with flags.

The Hampton Veteran's Day program will be in the historic Hampton Depot at 11 a.m., on Friday, Nov. 11.

Hampton resident Bill Dodd will showcase an excellent array of military memorabilia and uniforms on the depot's lower level. The display can be seen before and after the scheduled program.

Anyone who would like to make a donation to the Hampton veterans tribute can do so at City Hall, 17 East Main Street.
