The Monticello Times and its editorial staff is asking for the community’s help with a Veterans Day salute. In the Thursday, Nov. 6, edition of the Times, we’ll be publishing stories and photos honoring our local veterans, many of whom currently serve our community each day through their occupations in business, education, industry, law enforcement and public safety.
