The Hopkins County Marine Corps League Detachment 1357 and the Hopkins County Military Coalition presented a program for Veterans Day at 11:11 a.m. on the Downtown Square on Nov. 11, 2021.

It included a 21-gun salute and a reading of the presidential proclamation by Marine Corp League Judge Advocate Robert L. Kerr. County Judge Robert Newsom gave the invocation, and Ridley Briggs gave a speech on the meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance.
