MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Memphis and Shelby County mayors A C Wharton and Mark Luttrell continued to honor those who served our country with an annual military appreciation luncheon held Thursday at the Holiday Inn on Central Avenue.

The 11th annual event paid a special tribute to female veterans and those who are currently serving our country so selflessly.

Retired Tennessee National Guard Major General Rita Works of Cordova, who grew up in Memphis and held various commands at the 164th Airlift Wing in Memphis, was the special guest speaker at the luncheon. Mayor Wharton presented Brig. Gen. Works with a key to the city.

Mayor Wharton said they sent out over 500 invites and the city and county received nearly 500 replies to attend the luncheon.
