HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

Washington County celebrated Veterans Day with a special ceremony in Hillsboro.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars program hosted the event near the Hillsboro Airport.

Suzanne Bonamici and Hillsboro Mayor Jerry Wiley spoke during the ceremony, which included a gun salute and posting of the colors.

People at the event told FOX 12 the message of military service was influential and positive for kids.

"I think it's important that we teach them and they know where our freedoms come from and why we are so lucky to live in this country," said Debbie Ivanov.

The ceremony was sponsored by Washington County Disability, Aging and Veteran Services.
