Dozens of retired veterans from around the state gathered at Camp Shelby Thursday to visit with fellow veterans and check out some of the newest equipment being used by the Mississippi National Guard.
It was all part of the annual Military Retiree Day.
The Army and Air National Guard retirees received thanks for their service from Col. Greg Michel, commander of Camp Shelby.
The honorees also ate lunch, viewed static displays of tanks, armored troop carriers and other vehicles.
Mississippi adjutant general, Maj. Gen. Augustus Collins, also gave them an update on current Mississippi National Guard deployments and training missions.
