SMITHERS, WV (WOAY) – The city of Smithers honored seventeen veterans by adding their names to a veterans monument.
The monument has names of local veterans from all wars and all branches of the military. The memorial is a great way to honor the veterans for their service and sacrifice to our country.
“People gave up years of their lives, they put their lives in danger, and there are actually people on here who didn’t survive their service,” said Smithers Mayor Anne Cavalier. “It’s our honor to respect them, and you can see here this evening we have family members here that are honoring live service members and fallen service members.”
The monument is across the street from the Smithers post office if you would like to see the list yourself.
