Mesa County Honors Veterans

The Board of County Commissioners recognizes the service, dedication and sacrifice of all Mesa County veterans for their military service. Our country is free because of those who have selflessly answered the call to serve and protect.

Mesa County Commissioners present a proclamation Monday (Nov. 6) morning in public hearing to commemorate Mesa County Veterans. Back row: Mike Bradbury, Curtis Jones, Rich Reno, Scott Treider. Front row: Lou Brackett, Mesa County Commissioner John Justman, Mesa County Veteran Services Officer Brian Oney, Mesa County Solid Waste Director Barrett Jensen, Mesa County Commissioner Scott McInnis.

Mesa County Commissioners honor the significant contributions made by American service members, their families, and their loved ones, and they encourage our community to acknowledge and honor veterans and military families for what they have done to support our great Nation.

Mesa County Veteran Services Officer Brian Oney accepts the proclamation recognizing Mesa County Veterans in public hearing on behalf of service members and their families. 

After the public hearing, many veterans spent time sharing stories on the front lawn of the Old Mesa County Courthouse, 544 Rood Ave.
