FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX 56) — The city of Frankfort came together on a rainy Veterans Day to honor those who have served the nation.

Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman was one to speak at the gathering, remembering her grandfather’s service to the nation. At the event, all branches of the armed services were recognized.


The event featured everything — patriotic music, the 21-gun salute, and the playing of taps to remember those who have fallen.  One of the speakers, Larry Montgomery of American Legion Post 7 was honored to experience it.

“The playing of taps. I mean, for me to be right there next to it, I mean, it just there’s no other sound like the sound of taps. That reflects upon all of those who gave the supreme sacrifice and all the other sacrifices that were made,” Montgomery said.
