We are thankful today for all the men and women that have spent time in the military. Like most homes and workplaces, through these doors and under the roofs, we have family members, friends and co-workers that have served. We have people under our own roof at our stations in Sedalia that have been both stateside and around the world serving our country.

Take a moment today to thank those that have been away from family and friends. Those that have seen and endured conditions that we could never nor want to imagine in our own minds. Those that have lost sons, fathers, mothers, husbands and wives.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those men and women of the Armed  Forces. Thank You and God Bless.

Due to the weather forecast with low wind-chill temperatures on Monday, the Veteran's Day parade, organized by the Smith-Cotton ROTC, will now be held on Saturday, November 16 at 1 p.m.
