Former military members were honored in Lancaster County on Saturday.

Pennsylvania State Representatives Ryan Aument and Mindy Fee hosted the “Salute to your Service” recognition ceremony in West Hempfield Township. Veterans and their families who live in the 37th and 41st districts were honored for their  service to our country at the Pleasant Ridge Retirement Community.

“A phenomenal amount of veterans here today and their families and just to tell them how much we appreciate their service and their families that are there to support them,”  said State Rep. Mindy Fee.

“As a veteran personally, I have a particular interest, a passion for veterans, for their veterans, who have sacrificed, who have given so much whether serving in peace time or in theaters of combat,” said State Rep. Ryan Aument.

    I missed this event. I work Monday on Veterans day. I'm going to check out what is happening tomorrow. Any suggestions anyone? I was for the start of Desert Shield. USS Independence CV 62. By chance someone reading this in South Central PA on the Indy also?
    I would like to meet Vets of Desert Storm and beyond to shake their hand and thank them personally for their dedication and service.

      Hello 43 News Folks. Thank you for reporting on this event. We veterans appreciate your
      covering events like this. In fact, we stopped watching WGAL news after many years because they no longer cover Lancaster County news unless they pull something off the police log (the easy button).
      Keep up the effort and we will keep watching.
