DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Communities across our area are commemorating Veterans Day. Davidson held a special celebration on the town green.
Many in the town were part of the celebration. Mayor John Woods took the stage at 11:00 am.
He was followed by the Community School of Davidson Chorus and then the Davidson Police Department Color Guard. Members also placed a wreath of remembrance.
Those who attended say it's good to know the sacrifice and dedication of veterans are not forgotten.
NBC Charlotte spoke with several veterans who say ceremonies like the one in Davidson are important.
"All veterans are heroes, and I think we need to honor this legacy that was started a way long time ago," said veteran Irvin Brawley.
"If you're remembering people who died or gave up things, it means there was an event that they had to do that for. It'd be best not to have to do that. So remember it, so you don't have to do it again," noted another veteran, Mike Anthony.
