BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - A new community organization called Honor Sentinels wants to show their support for veterans in Bainbridge.

The Decatur County Board of Education donated a building to the organization as a place to serve the needs of close to 2,400 local veterans.

The center will give veterans access to computers for job searching and education, along with couches and a game room to relax.

Honor Sentinels President Dan West said, “There's nothing more therapeutic than people who have been in the same situation that can come together and share their feelings and memories, the good and bad.”

The Honor Sentinels will host a music festival Saturday May 30th at the Bainbridge Bikefest Grounds to raise money for the center.

Gates open at 11 a.m.

The event is free for children six and under, $25 for adults 13 and up, and $10 for ages 6-12.
