SARASOTA, Fla. -- Four Suncoast military veterans were honored in Sarasota Tuesday at the annual Veterans Awards Luncheon at Michaels on East.

The awards were handed out by the Jewish Family and Children's Service of the Suncoast.

The vets honored were all U.S. Army veterans: Richard Alvarez, Christopher Davis, John O'Brien, and Andy Hooker. "It’s a great thing to keep the support out to help not only the veterans, but the active duty military and their familes," said Hooker.

Organizers say the awardees were selected from the community for their ability to inspire patriotism, provide service to others, and offer hope to veterans while demonstrating collaboration, leadership, and integrity.
