USS Edson holds its first Veterans Day ceremony

Posted: Updated:
BAY COUNTY (WJRT) -

(11/11/12) - Sunday, we honored those who have fought for our county and gave their lives.

There are so many ceremonies going on across Mid-Michigan. One of the biggest was in Bay County.

Community members gathered at the USS Edson to honor our servicemen and women. The 418 foot Navy ship spent years in combat defending our country. It was brought to Mid-Michigan in August.

Veteran John Dewise told ABC12 what made this Veterans Day important to him.

"It a great day. Normally we have 15 to 20 people show up and it is usually cold and we got a lot of young people. That really makes me feel good," he said.
