Welcome Home Veterans, a Military Appreciation Day occurred Saturday as several hundred people crowded Lum's Auto Center in Warrenton to thank veterans for their service. There was live music, a barbeque and award presentations. A couple of dozen veterans representing World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Iraq wars and the Afghanistan War related their experiences and received thanks from the assembled crowd. The veterans, ranging in age from their 20s to 90s, were bound together by a love of country and a sense of duty.
