Hot dogs and hamburgers will be given to everyone who attends.

There will also be games and fishing.

It's just a little way the county hopes to say thank you.

"They don't think they are owed anything. They think they owe their country, and we are just proud of them. We are proud of all our veterans," said Houston County Veteran's Service Officer, Fred Newtz.

The event will take place from 11 a-A.M. to 2 P.M. All veterans who attend will get to be a part of a big group picture.
