Northside Christian Church in Vandalia hosted a Veterans Day program on Monday morning, with the church pastor, the Rev. Carl Rhodes, serving as master of ceremonies.


In addition to telling about his experiences during the Vietnam War, Rhodes asked other veterans to talk about their service; among those were Jim Smith (first photo) and Earl Brackenbush (second photo), who wore his government-issued uniform to the program.
