BULLARD, Texas (KETK) – CampV hosted a Veterans Day Celebration in Bullard Wednesday morning.

The event began at 10 a.m. at the American Freedom Museum on North Houston Street. The ceremony will feature a recognition of soldiers deemed MIA (Missing In Action) or KIA (Killed In Action). There also was patriotic songs performed.

A poem written by a Bullard ISD kindergartner about her dad’s deployment in the Marines was read and received a standing ovation from the crowd.

Speaking at the event was Mullard Mayor Pro-tem Bryan Willis as well as United State Air Force Major Beverley Russell.
