Freeport Veteran’s Day Ceremony
A large crowd of young and old gathered in front of the Freeport City Hall
Monday to celebrate the Freedoms Veterans protect for us. Local veterans
were joined by elected officials, the Freeport Town Planters, Glenda Penton
and residents to honor veterans and dedicate another addition to the City’s
memorial. The new Fallen Soldiers Monument depicts a woman kneeling at the
grave of a soldier.
Freeport native Jerry Hatcher, Captain US Navy retired, spoke about what it
takes to be a soldier or sailor. He served and was awarded a number of
honors, mostly for his work with helicopters. Latelda Henniger, Freeport’s
City Planner, sang the National Anthem and the Walton High Air Force Jr.
ROTC presented the Colors and raised flags of each military branch. Tim
Ard, Fallen Veterans Memorial Chair gave the introductions and told of the
effort to bring the memorial to the grounds. Marty Faircloth with Woodmen
of the World noted the gift of flags. The Walton County Sheriff’s Office
gave a gun salute, played Taps and two men in kilts played Amazing grace on
the drum and bagpipes. Russ Barley and Eleanor Turner placed the wreath on
the monument. The day took time to remember all veterans, not just the
fallen, but those who have served and are still serving.
Glenda Penton, whose son Timothy Padgett lost his life in service, spoke.
She has taken up the banner of making sure Padgett’s sacrifice and that of
others is not forgotten.
