A number of programs took place in honor of Veterans Day, with one of the lengthier ones happening on the grounds of Harlan County High School. Beginning at 11 a.m., a number of organizations began walking 22 miles in remembrance of the 22 veterans who take their lives daily after returning home. The last mile was performed as part of a 5:30 p.m. program, which was open to the public. The program included a presentation of colors by the HCHS JROTC color guard, the National Anthem sung by the HCHS choir, Taps performed by HCHS trumpet player Tessa Mumford and a number of distinguished speakers, including Gold Star Family Member James Carroll. Donations for deployed Kentucky National Guard servicemembers were also accepted.
