Southern States Bank holds annual First Responder and Military Appreciation Day

SHARE NOW

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Southern States Bank in Sylacauga held its annual brunch to honor first responders and military on Friday, Sept. 9.

The bank’s staff provided food and drinks for those in attendance as well as set up a display to remember those that sacrificed their lives during the tragic events that took place almost 21 years ago on Sept. 11, 2001.

“No matter how bad it gets, we’re there until the job is finished and the emergency is [gone],” said Nate Osgood, Sylacauga’s Fire Chief. “All of us got into this job because we want to serve people, and we always want to make sure that anytime there is a tragedy, we learn from it. The best way we can honor those who have fallen before us is to make sure that it doesn’t happen again.”

Retired veterans and members of Sylacauga’s Fire and Police Departments were on hand, and many expressed how much it means to them to serve both the local community and the United States.

“Anytime we have the opportunity or the situation dictates that we can provide service to the citizens of Sylacauga, that’s what we’re here for,” Osgood expressed. “That’s what we aim to do.”
