ERATH COUNTY (November 11, 2015) — Residents, city and county officials and students all gathered at the Erath County Courthouse Wednesday morning to honor the county, state and country’s veterans of all wars with the 94th Annual Veteran’s Day Ceremony, hosted by the American Legion Turnbow-Higgs Post 240.

“Valor is courage of the soul, and that, ladies and gentelmen, is what you’ve presented to us and the world,” said guest speaker Don Parker to veterans and active military in attendance.

Colors were presented and a rifle salute was made by Tarleton State University ROTC Color Guard, and a wreath was set in front of the Erath County Veteran’s Memorial on the west side of the courthouse by Auxiliary Unit 240 President Kathy Geffre. Jim Cox of Post 240 played Taps.

Erath County United Way and Interbank helped with the setup of the ceremony, Stephenville Police helped block traffic from the square and Stephenville Parks and Recreation set up for the festivities.
