Junior Walking Veteran Daniel Cox (L) and the Walking Veteran Thomas Wayne Hudson (R) are pictured in the Henryetta Territorial Museum next to the new Walking Veteran wagon display designed by Henryettans Vernon Britt and Eddy Thomas. The display features artifacts from Hudson’s Walk Across America, a journey designed to raise awareness of veterans’ mistreatments from the VA. It was featured Saturday, following a parade and ceremony including remarks from Hudson, Mayor Jennifer Clason, Historical Society President Mike Doak and others, as well as performances from MaKayla Baxter, Marcus Whitoworth and Piper Kent Pharaoh and special visit from  Congressional Military Liaison for U.S. House of Representatives Daniel Espinoza. See pictures of the event on pages 7B and 8B.
