Veterans Ceremony at Gregg County Courthouse

On the steps of the Gregg County courthouse hundreds gathered to recall the memory of some real heroes. The ordinary men and women who, through the years, have protected and defended freedom, and all those who believe in it.

Local dignitaries addressed the crowd on the importance of this day, which once was known as Armistice Day. Old faces of those who had served were on hand and all branches of the armed forces were recognized for their service.

It was the 25th year for the courthouse Veteran's Day ceremonies.
