Jeffery Emmert is a retired Army staff sergeant. His father served in WWI and Korea.

Emmert remembers his dad on Veterans Day.

"He’s been gone now for four and half years," he says. "I learned a lot from my Dad." 

Emmert is proud that he was in the military too.

The Warrior Resource Center in Montrose helps veterans and their families.
Laura Palmisano KVNF

On Thursday mornings about 50 veterans meet at the Warrior Resource Center in Montrose. 

They come here to have a cup coffee and maybe a donut. But mostly they're here to mingle with others who served in the military.

The veterans here span many generation and many wars. Some served during World War II and Korea. Others fought in Vietnam and the Middle East. And they represent every branch of the military.

David Adams did three tours in Iraq. He retired from the Army in 2007 due to a back injury. 

Adams says he tries to come here every week.
