PASCO COUNTY – The County Commission and administration held a special ceremony Wednesday (Nov. 9) to show gratitude to veterans employed by and living in Pasco.
The resolution and recognition ceremony was held during the commission’s regularly scheduled board meeting in the West Pasco Government Center Board Room, 8731 Citizens Drive, New Port Richey.

“Pasco County remains a community that has historically honored its veterans,” Pasco County Veterans Services division manager Don Stout said. “We have a community that is proud of those who served; and it is an honor to have the opportunity to bring together, in recognition, those veterans who serve the citizens of Pasco County and those who represent the citizens of Pasco County.”
The ceremony featured Pamela Martis, the Saint Leo University director for the Office of Military Affairs and Services, was the keynote speaker. The Ridgewood High School chorus sang the National Anthem.
