Many of the men and women fighting this war come from the heartland of America. Smaller communities, like the ones right here in East Texas. And now those small towns are rallying together to show support for our troops. In Hallsville, flags, banners and signs are everywhere you turn. The town even has a prayer board, showing all of the men and women they know involved in the Iraq operation. Hallsville townspeople unfurled a special hand-made 20 foot American flag to honor U.S. forces overseas. Hand-made signs decorate front yards showing the patriotic spirit. Members of this community say it's just one way they can show their pride.
