American Legion Hardin Post 113 in Elizabethtown is using the holiday season as an opportunity to thank veterans.
The legion hosts a luncheon to honor World War II and Korean War veterans at noon Thursday at the post. The meal is free for veterans and a caregiver.
“At the rate we’re losing our veterans, in our book they can’t get recognized enough,” said Denzil Lile, a luncheon organizer.
The day after Christmas provides an opportunity for the veterans to bring family who may be visiting for the holidays, he said.
