Lee Marts Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #3571 and its Auxiliary recently honored the hometown heroes of the Delta area with an awards dinner to celebrate Loyalty Day. Honored were city, county, and state law enforcement personnel, EMTs, search and rescue personnel, and members of the Delta Volunteer Fire Department -- those men and women who work diligently to protect life and property in the area, sometimes at great risk to themselves.
