Baptist DeSoto event salutes North Mississippi veterans

Baptist DeSoto held its seventh annual Veterans Day celebration on Monday, Nov.11 to thank those who have served our country. At the event, vets were treated to a free breakfast and health screenings while DeSoto County students serenaded them with patriotic music. Above, local school children deliver some of the 5,400 Shoeboxes for Soldiers collected throughout the community. The boxes, filled with snacks and toiletries, will be shipped to North Mississippi troops stationed overseas.
