Enterprise Mayor William E. Cooper proclaimed the week of May 1 as “Wounded Veterans Week” on April 29.

“During their courageous fight in serving our country against the enemy that is and has been before us, our armed forces have suffered not only physical wounds but emotional wounds as well,” Cooper read. “Since returning from service, these honorable men and women face day-to-day challenges in trying to rebuild their lives from what they once knew, and although we may never fully repay our debt of gratitude to these heroes, Wounded Veterans Week presents an opportunity for our citizens to honor and thank our wounded veterans for their service to our community.”

Cooper was joined by members of the Wiregrass Wounded Veterans Committee, Quilts of Valor and Sam Boswell Honda for the event.
