Montague Monumental Honor

        Many towns across the country and state are saying thank you to our veterans, but in Montague they are saying more than just "Thank You". Earlier today in Montague they unveiled a county veterans memorial wall 3 years in the making. The memorial was manufactured, delivered, installed, and polished by Lancaster Memorial in Wichita Falls. Hundreds were at the ceremony to see the wall unveiled to the public. There was a moment of silence, a choir to sing songs of patriotism, military taps was played out, and 8 cannons were fired to finish off the festivities for the walls unveiling. 

        Montague is not one of the biggest counties in Texas, in fact  the North Texas Veterans Affairs Health Director came all the way from Dallas to see the wall unveiled. Milligan says every town he serves is important and he was happy to meet with the veterans of Montague to talk with them about what he can do as their NTVA Health Director.

       Jeff Hornor is a Marine Iraq War Veteran from the north Montague town of Saint Jo. Hornor says people have always thanked him for his service before, but to see the memorial with his name on it was amazing.

     "When you walk up and see your name on a monument that your state recognizes and your country did for you it's etched in stone. It's just unreal to be able to take your name off and see it in person."

     If you would like to go and see the memorial for yourself the memorial is located at 100 Grand Street in the town of Montague, Texas.
