"There's a song by an artist by the name of Trace Atkins and it says, 'we are thankful for those who are thankful,' and I believe in that one hundred percent," said veteran Ruthford Shannon.
"It makes me feel very good that I know there are a lot of people who are thankful for those who made the sacrifices."
Shannon is the commander of the American Legion Post in Westville. He's one of many who took part in the ceremony on Sunday.
