Veterans recognized at Senior Center

RIDGELAND, SC (WTOC) - The Senior Center in Ridgeland showed off their patriotism with a tribute to the veterans living there. The celebration drew a large crowd of families, friends and proud neighbors. One person in particular, Mrs. Harriett Merritt, worked hard to put the program together.

"My husband is a veteran and he's handicapped and veterans have been really in my heart all along and I think they need to get a little bit more recognition than what they have," said Merritt.

WTOC's Sonny Dixon was the guest speaker at the ceremony and also helped present awards.
