U.S. Army Maj. (Ret.) Michael McPherson addressed a crowd that included a large number of veterans at the 10th annual Veterans Day observance in Knightdale. The event is sponsored by the Two Green Thumbs Garden Club, which established the Blue Star Memorial on First Avenue.
McPherson described the courage and bravery required of military families who often have to deal with the uncertainty of what is happening to their loved one when they are deployed on military missions.
