ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. - Anniston Army Depot took part in one of Etowah County's most prized traditions at the Gadsden Convention Hall Nov. 3. In its 36th year, the annual Patriots Day Program honored all Veterans and served to induct six men (one of them posthumously) into the 2010 Patriot's Hall of Honor.

A Veterans parade was scheduled to take place following the Patriots Day Program, but it was cancelled due to inclement weather.

Along with about 25 retired and active duty service members from all branches of service, Maj. Jefferey Lewis, deputy director of contracting, and Depot Sgt. Maj. Tony Butler represented Anniston Army Depot at the head table in front of a couple hundred event participants.

ANAD also supported the program with a Stryker vehicle, which was driven and then displayed by depot mechanics Neil Chandler and Jeremy Smith. Police escort was provided by depot security guards Lt. Gary Roper and Roland Pullen. Kudos to the Anniston Team on a job well done.
