The gift certificates were presented to veterans Chief of Police Andy Strait and Investigator Matt Thomas.
“As a veteran and law enforcement officer, it means a lot to know that we have the support of the local VFW, veterans and the community,” Strait said about the donation. “It really brightens our day to know they are behind us.”
