Veterans Honored at Panola College

veterans day

A Veterans Day dinner was hosted by the Panola College Green Jackets. Panola County veterans and their spouses were entertained by a great meal from Sodexo and guest speaker Mr.  Michael Ferguson from Kilgore College. He spoke about the invasion of D-Day and had a slideshow of photographs he had taken while taking soldiers back to visit who had been involved in the invasion that day.  The oldest and youngest attending veteran were recognized. The youngest was Jeffry Oney, who had served a three year active duty tour in the Army and is currently in his fourth year of serving in the Army reserve. Jeffry is currently serving as the Green Jackets president for the year.
