Cortez honors veterans with fish fry



Cortez author Joe Crawford lent his uniform to the Cortez Cultural
Center for the Veteran’s Day picnic.


The Cortez Cultural Center honored the 66 Cortezians who fought for their country at the Tribute to Veterans, a free fish fry on Saturday afternoon.

Historic military uniforms that belonged to Cortez veterans were on display, along with the biographies and photographs of several Cortez veterans.

Relatives of the three surviving Cortez veterans who fought in World War II, Albert Few Jr., Cleve Adams and C.D. Adams, attended, although the veterans themselves, in their 90s, were unable to participate.

The center, 11655 Cortez Road W., is open Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit Facebook at Cortez Village Cultural Center.
