North Ogden devotional sets off early recognition of Veterans Day
NORTH OGDEN, Utah — In North Ogden, hundreds of people braved cold winds on Sunday to begin a days-long observance of Veterans Day.
KSL TV’s Alex Cabrero reports that those who came to North Ogden and Barker Park to memorialize Veterans Day donned mittens and hats, blankets and warm drinks in order to watch and listen to what was described as a devotional that was focused on veterans.
“I thank you for those who have served, who are currently serving, and that will serve,” said one of the speakers on stage.
Veterans Day is on Thursday, but Veterans Week was put together by The Major Brent Taylor Foundation. Taylor was the Mayor of North Ogden while at the same time a Major in the Utah National Guard. He was killed in Afghanistan in November of 2018.
Since the time of his death, his wife Jennie Taylor created The Major Brent Taylor Foundation. According to its website, the foundation exists to train future and current leaders, honor military families, and engage community members.
