ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A group of New Mexico veterans received a special honor Thursday.
The Department of Senior Affairs has created a wall in the Manzano Mesa Senior Center thanking veterans for their service. It proudly displays their photos and stories.
The veterans hope others will learn from their stories.
“Anybody who goes in will get an appreciation for what the life is really like and what people sacrifice for because they have no idea,” said Ron DeLashmutt.
This is the seventh center to dedicate a wall of honor for New Mexico veterans.
