Please include with the photo your veteran’s full name, rank upon retiring, branch of service and years of service.

“This is an opportunity to have your veterans be part of our ceremony,” City of Enterprise Special Projects Coordinator Kay Kirkland said. “We have so many brave men and women in our community who chose to serve our country, and this is just one small way we can show our thanks for their service.”

The community luncheon is hosted by local Veterans Service Organizations, with support of the Enterprise Chamber of Commerce Military & Veterans Affairs Committee and the City of Enterprise.
