Veterans treated to free lunch by Craven County Veterans Council

Posted: Updated:
NEW BERN, N.C. -

Ahead of Veterans Day next week, folks in New Bern are honoring those who have served our country.

On Friday the Craven County Veteran's Council held its annual Veterans Day luncheon at the National Guard Armory on Glenburnie Drive.
     
Participants bowed their head in silence for those who died fighting for our freedom. They also gave a salute for their sacrifices and sang the National Anthem.
     
After the ceremony, veterans and their caregivers enjoyed a free lunch.

"It's great," said Ben Gurganus, who says he served in the military for 21 years. "They think a lot of the veterans, and I appreciate it. And I'm sure the other guys do too."

Gurganus says the luncheon gave him an opportunity to meet with friends he hadn't seen in a long time.
