Honoring Veterans in Wicomico County

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md. - Dozens of veterans from Wicomico County from World War II up to those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan gathered Monday in Salisbury for the annual Veterans Day Ceremony at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center.

Among the veterans there was Staff Sergeant Susan Calhoun who has spent a good portion of her life serving in two different branches of the military, beginning with the army.

"I actually joined way back when I was a youngster, when I was about 20 and I worked in the field artillery meteorology and I was active duty then and I went overseas to Korea.  And then I was out of the service and I came back and joined the National Guard.  Now I work in administration and I served a tour in Iraq."

Calhoun told WBOC that she spends her Veterans Day amongst those who served before her so she can show her gratitude for the men and women that paved the way for her and future generations of veterans.

"Whenever I see a World War II veteran, I cannot help but be appreciative because it was because of their generation that our generation even got to put our boots on."

While WBOC was able to spotlight the service of Staff Sergeant Calhoun, all of the veterans who served to protect our country deserve thanks and recognition on Veterans Day.
