Surrounded by a memorial dedicated to veterans’ sacrifice, the Veterans Day Ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. Monday in downtown Elizabethton.

The Oversight Committee for the War Memorial and Walk of Honor will sponsor the ceremony at the War Memorial, located on Armed Forces Drive.

Carter County Historian Scott Bowers will speak at the event, to which the public is invited.
The Elizabethton-Carter County Veterans War Memorial was dedicated on Nov. 11, 2002, in memory of the 256 Carter Countians killed in combat since World War I.
