Maryville Vets Day

Veterans from Nodaway County will be recognized at the courthouse in Maryville this morning.

This year's keynote speaker is Missouri National Guard captain Ryan Jennings. He's with the Maryville headquarters but also endured the Bataan Memorial Death March in March of this year. Program organizer Bob Bohlken says the Maryville native was chosen because of his local ties and service to the country.
