Local Jr ROTC pays tribute to local veterans.


ELIZABETHTON-(WJHL)-A heartwarming ceremony was held in Elizabethton this afternoon to honor soldiers from the Tri-Cities region.

Ivy Hill Nursing Home and the Dobyns-Bennett Air Force Jr ROTC came together to pay tribute to veterans for World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Each veteran was presented with a certificate of appreciation hand delivered by a ROTC member.

Sargent Angelo Pellitteri says its important to come out and see these veterans to let them know that they are not forgotten.

If you would like to pass along your appreciation and well wishes, letters can be mailed to veterans at Ivy Hill Nursing Home. 301 South Watauga Rd., Elizabethton, Tennessee 37643.
