HogansviUe City Councilman Jack Leidner, who served his time in the U.S. Army, was the featured speaker: He reminded the crowd of veterans' sacrifices that "are the foundation of American freedom." Calling attention to the monument in the park that pays tribute to Hogansville's veterans, he noted that "it helps to remind us that there are faces and families behind each name" of those who paid the ultimate price for freedom and never returned from America's wars. "Today, Veterans Day, we say thank you to all of those service personnel we are so fortunate to have still among us as friends, nghbors and family," he said. See VETERANS, Page 2A
