Prince George’s County Circuit Court Honors Local Veterans


(UPPER MARLBORO, Md. – May 27, 2011) The Prince George’s County Circuit Court held an appreciation ceremony to celebrate the county’s veterans on Monday, May 23. The ceremony was held in front of the restored historic Duvall Wing of the Prince George’s County Courthouse in Upper Marlboro.

“We are honored to recognize our county’s veterans at this second annual celebration. Through this celebration we are asking all county residents to pause for a minute to say thank you to these proud men and women for the outstanding service they have given to this county,” said Administrative Judge Sheila R. Tillerson Adams.

To prepare for this event, the court called on veterans in Prince George’s County to submit photos and information about their service to be included in a video.
