Leon County invites the community to the fourth annual Operation Thank You event, “Operation Thank You 2015 – In Honor of Korean War Veterans and to Celebrate Armed Forces Day.” This year’s Operation Thank You event will be held on Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 8:30 a.m. at the Korean War Memorial located at Cascades Park, 1001 South Gadsden Street.

Leon County has a long tradition of supporting its local veteran community through an array of programs and services. Since 2012, the County has held Operation Thank You events each year to honor veterans who have dedicated their lives in order to protect the basic principles of freedom. Operation Thank You events have helped the County to forge strong partnerships with a number of veteran groups in the community, allowing the Leon County Veteran Services Division to better serve the more than 18,500 veterans and their families in Leon County.
