ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -

Dozens of people gathered at the DoubleTree in Albemarle County on Tuesday, July 11, to celebrate the men and women in the military community.

The Charlottesville Chamber of Commerce's annual Veterans and Defense Honor Breakfast featured a guest address from Army Brigadier General Patrick Huston.

Huston says the breakfast is one small way to celebrate service members’ sacrifice to their country.

"It's great to have everyone together where we can talk about what folks have done and really celebrate our collective heritage," says Huston.

The breakfast included a raffle with prizes ranging from a free stay at the DoubleTree to a free round of golf at Birdwood Golf Course.
