U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick, R-9th District, smiled broadly on Friday evening as she presented medals to 16 U.S. service veterans, including 11 from Gaston County.

More than 100 people attended the ceremony held on Veterans Day at Myrick’s Gastonia office on Main Avenue.

The occasion marked a day of celebration and entitlement for the veterans and their families.

Myrick’s staff had been working with either the veterans themselves or their families to get the medals they had a right to upon discharge from the branches of the military where they served.

Eight veterans were honored posthumously. Several families came forth upon hearing the name of the veteran in their family.

“For those of you who have served, we want to give you a very big thank you,” Myrick said as she addressed the crowd. “A lot of people today still don’t recognize Veterans Day.”
