Ottawa held their first annual "Meet the Military" Day this afternoon.
The event at Ottawa Ordnance honors veterans and active duty members of the military. They invited local recruiters to take questions from those interested in enlisting. The event features challenges by different branches as well as military memorabilia. Co-owner of Ottawa Ordnance Cindy Verhoff says it's important we have events like this to honor those who have served. "There's so many things that our tax dollars do not cover for our military, and I've found that out because our son is a Marine. There are so many things that are not done for them that I really feel should be done. The respect, the honor, the gratitude for what they do," Vorhoff said.
Cindy plans to make "Meet the Military" Day an annual event.
