Friday, some men and women who defend America’s freedom were the "Guests of Honor" at the open door Baptist Church in Enterprise.
The church sponsored the second annual Wiregrass salute to the keepers of freedom. The event was meant to show the community's support for the military, and their families.
Organizers say those who often put their lives' on the line can feel forgotten.
"Folks at Ft. Rucker that come in from all over; it’s a real blessing. We’re glad to have them. It brings a lot for our culture. Helps us meet folks from all over the world. A blessing to have these folks here," Pastor John McCrummen.
Retired Colonel Danny McKnight, the author of the best selling book "Black Hawk Down" was a guest speaker at Friday’s ceremony.
