On Veterans Day, vets are celebrated across the nation.

The Chico Elks Lodge hosted a Veterans Day celebration, Saturday morning.

Guests were treated to patriotic music performed by the Chico community concert band and a presentation from James Crow, who shared his experiences during his time in Vietnam.

Sharon Nichols is a 22-year Navy vet who now serves on the Veterans Day committee.

She said a simple thank you goes a long way.

"If you know a veteran, thank them for their service. If you see one, I see people in the stores in their military caps, you see them all over. And they're proud of their military service, say thank you. You get a great big smile when you do that,” Nichols said.

Boy Scout troop 423 also held a U.S. flag retirement ceremony as prescribed by U.S. flag etiquette.
