Veterans Day honored in Wisconsin Rapids


Dozens of people gathered next to the river as the Assumption Catholic Schools marching band played.

One veteran tells us that having people show up in the chilly weather shows their support for our veterans.

"Well it shows their dedication to the veterans of the city here in the area and to the local veterans organizations, and we do a lot, to help veterans," said Keith Mcdowell, U.S. Navy veteran.

The ceremony was followed by a chili luncheon.
