GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - A Veteran's Day breakfast ceremony honored those who have served our country. TV20's Dylan Lyons had the opportunity to speak with veterans.

Walter Jackson and Walter Cason both served in the United States Army. They both say they didn't have a choice and were drafted to serve. Both men say this day is very special and brings brothers and sisters who served alongside one another together.

"Veteran's day means a lot to me because I think about all my friends that I served with," said Walter Jackson an Army Veteran.

The ceremony was filled with respect, honor, and signs thanking and honoring those who have served our country.

"We were put together by the fabric of unity. Even in battle or plain peacetime we still brothers and sisters. It means more to me if we just do that than anything in the world. No matter what war we were in. No matter what service we served in, it's just brotherhood and sisterhood," said Walter Cason an Army Veteran.

Jackson and Cason say they both enjoyed serving in the army and serving the country. The event took place at the Martin Luther King Center in Gainesville.

This breakfast was in honor of Colonel Charles D. Young. There were resources for veterans at the event including Alachua County Veterans Services.
