The Yamhill County Sheriff's Office celebrated Veteran's Day last week by recognizing employees that have served in the military.

To that end, Sheriff Tim Svenson issued each of the 13 deputies a veteran pin to be worn on their uniform of the day. In addition, veteran stickers were added to the deputies' patrol cars, some of which were also adorned with patriotic badging.

"I hope our citizens will notice this vehicle while it is patrolling Yamhill County and take a moment to contemplate what it represents and the sacrifices made by our current and former military (personnel) to keep this country free," Svenson said.

Svenson hopes, the release said, that in addition to displaying "their pride in serving our nation," the symbol will also "create a better connection to other veterans in our community who may be in crisis or need."
