Many times on Veteransâ€™ Day, there is no shortage of recognition for soldiers who fought in the two World Wars, Korea, Vietnam and even the first Gulf War.
For this Veteransâ€™ Day, West Point has had the privilege to honor soldiers who have sacrificed over the last decade, even in the last year.
On Friday, West Point honored the men and women of the 223rd as Veterans of the Year.
Some days the lobby of the Clay County Sheriffâ€™s Department may have only one or two individuals waiting patiently to speak to a deputy or to visit an inmate. Other times the lobby may be packed full.
And thatâ€™s the primary reason Clay County Sheriff Eddie Scott decided to establish a new public entrance to the Clay County Detention Center, now located on the west side of the Sheriffâ€™s Department instead of the front.
At least 10 rounds of gunfire were reportedly heard Monday in the area of Brame Ave. near Marston Court Apartments where West Point police quickly responded to see if anyone had been injured.
Thankfully, when officers responded around 1:30 p.m., they found that no one had been injured but spoke with several individuals on scene to gather additional information about the incident. Shortly after interviewing several people, West Point investigators searched the area and found about five shell casings along Brame Ave.
