Locals honor veterans

Crowds gathered for Veterans Day in downtown Morgan Hill on Sunday, Nov. 11 to pay tribute to American servicemen and servicewomen.

The national holiday was observed with a public ceremony at the Veterans Memorial in the median of Monterey Road and First Street. The ceremony included a flag raising, the reading of names of locals who died in combat, the playing of Taps, and patriotic songs sung by local students.

Following the ceremony, the town held its fourth annual Morgan Hill Veterans Run 5K and 10K. Proceeds from the run went to local veterans organizations.
