On Friday, May 31st, Hickman County cut the ribbon on the new Veterans Service Office. The office is located at 202 E. Public Square in Centerville. The new facility has been a five year long labor of love that was lead by the Hickman County Veterans Service Officer Rick Humphrey with support from both city and county leadership. More than 50 people showed up for the ribbon cutting and open house. They were able to see some of the amazing military history that has come from Centerville and Hickman County as well as enjoy hamburgers and hotdogs for lunch. This building is also home to Hickman County's American Legion Post 36 and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4967 making it the perfect landing spot for any and all Veterans in the county. The facility is open and welcoming and ready to assist the veterans of Hickman County. Congratulations to Rick for a job well done.
