Brown’s Temple Church hosted its annual banquet recently where veterans, including women and men from all branches of the military, were honored. (Ret.) Lt. Col. Ms. Olivette Hook flew from Washington, D.C. where she worked for the government. Mr. Ardell Haston was honored as the oldest. He received a special gift. “This is a historical moment for us,” veterans said. “It such a honor to be recognized for our service to our country. Thank you Brown’s Temple.” Pictured in the foreground here is Mr. Haston.
