The Knox County honor guard is seeking more veterans to help out during ceremonies.

MOUNT VERNON — Terry Walter, 73, was introduced seven years ago to what he considers is one of the best-kept secrets in the community – Knox County Veterans Council Military Honor Guard.

It was when Walter worked with the Escape Zone Youth Center he met fellow honor guardsman Gary Fesler. At Fesler's invitation, Walter attended an upcoming veteran’s funeral. Walter's background, he served in the Army from 1969 to 1971, influenced him into joining the organization.
