Arkansas veterans were recognized by dignitaries in a North Little Rock ceremony Wednesday. The event came as the state Department of Veteran's Affairs begins instituting policy reforms.
The 106th Army Band and local Color Guards kicked off the ceremony. Active and former members of the military and their families heard from Governor Asa Hutchinson and others thanking them for their service.
“Not all receive medals, not all are recognized, but all deserve the honor of those who serve our country,” Hutchinson said.
