Veterans from the Town of Amherst were honored Sunday afternoon at the Fifth Memorial Unveiling of Veterans names.

The event took place at the Amherst Veterans Memorial in the Amherst State Park.

The Amherst Veterans Memorial was dedicated in 2011 and established as a permanent site to honor the 33 individuals and families connected to the Town of Amherst who served in our nation's military.

A concert by the Friends of Harmony sponsored by the Youth & Recreation Department followed the ceremony.
