Show Us Your Heroes
Please take a moment to upload a photo or video or leave a note of thanks in honor of our nation's military men and women.
Heroes live among us here in Kennesaw.
They are young and old, of different races and creeds—but they all share a common thread in their service and sacrifice to our country.
On this Veterans Day, I'd like to personally thank our military men and women for all they have done to serve and protect.
Please join me in honoring some of our local service members. Some have given their lives and limbs, while others make daily sacrifices that often go unseen. We are thankful for all of our military members—for those who are with us, and those who continue to live in our hearts.
