Huntington Lions Club, in partnership with the local VFW Post No. 2687, recently recognized and honored five young people who have made the commitment to serve their country in the U. S. Armed Forces.
A special ceremony took place at the VFW Post where individual recruits were given signature sheets with more than 500 signatures from local individuals thanking them for their willingness to serve their country to help defend the rights and freedoms enjoyed by American citizens.
Each recruit was also given a $200 appreciation check from the Lions Club and the local VFW post.
Recruits also received individual notes written by students from Flint Spring and Horace Mann Elementary Schools.
