Friday was a day for the veterans as local war heroes were remembered during the 10th annual Get High on Life prayer breakfast.

Keller, organizer of the event, said Friday’s crowd was the largest he had ever seen in the 10 years of the breakfast. Veterans from St.James, St. Charles and St. John who lost their lives fighting in past wars, were also honored as their names were read. (Staff photos by Robin Shannon.)
