During one of two Veterans Day ceremonies held in Juneau Monday morning, Gov. Sean Parnell asked the 150-plus people in Centennial Hall to call out the names of veterans closest to them.
Ray, Ernest, Steve, Don and Andrew were some of the names audience members shouted out loud.
“Our fathers, our mothers, our grandfathers, our husbands, wives, sisters and brothers,” Parnell said, nodding at the crowd’s responses. “We remember you whether you’re with us today or whether you’re not. We remember you, and we honor you.”
