Community Prayer Vigil

Monday afternoon, a local call out supporting those fighting overseas took the form of a prayer. Voices from local pastors, politicians, friends and family members of the military were all raised in a call for peace and safety for our troops.

Featured speakers included Tyler's current and former mayors, Joey Seeber and Kevin Eltife; Dr. Jerome Milton of Pleasant Hill's Baptist Church; Bob Craig of the Smith County Veteran's Services; and Dr. Michael Massar from Tyler's First Baptist Church. And East Texas Baptist University's choir provided the music.

The prayer vigil was supported by the World War II combat veterans.
