The Harrison County Elks and Texas Roadhouse teamed up Friday morning making today Veterans Day.
Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center hospital patients and nursing home residents were treated to a steak dinner at the Roadhouse.

Seventh grader WI student, Kayle Nut, sang the National Anthem before Friday’s dinner.
