Prior to Monday’s late-morning service honoring Veterans Day, a number of local veterans gathered around the Rio Blanco County Veterans Memorial on the lawn of the county courthouse in Meeker. The group represents many years of service to the United States military. The VFW-sponsored event honored military veterans from past and current times and those who never returned home due to being possible prisoners of war or those who went missing in action.
