East Texas Honors Veterans On Monday

A day of remembrance Monday, and honor for America's military. Several locations in East Texas will hold special programs.

John Tyler High School's Junior ROTC will present their annual Veterans Day program in their gym, beginning at nine-thirty. A plaque honoring World War II veteran Lt. Jack Pounds will be unveiled at a ten o'clock ceremony at the Tyler airport that bears his name. In Longview, their Veterans Day ceremony will take place at two at the Gregg County courthouse.

And the annual Marine Corps Birthday Celebration is Monday afternoon at the Tyler Sheraton. That event begins at five-thirty.
