Area veterans recognized on Veterans Day

TRAVELERS REST, S.C. – Area veterans were recognized at the annual Greater Travelers Rest Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year banquet, held Tuesday night at Green Valley Country Club.

"Tonight we are here to honor one who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in serving our community and making a difference in lives, but today is also a day set aside to honor some other selfless individuals - our Veterans," said Diana Kilgore, chamber president.

"As a mother, a wife, a business owner, president of the chamber, and most importantly an American Citizen, I would like to thank each of our veterans on behalf of our chamber, it's members and this community, for your service," Kilgore added.
