Longview presents flag to mother of fallen soldier

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - In East Texas, there were several Memorial Day ceremonies on Monday. Longview held on in front of the Gregg County Courthouse.

Hundreds of people showed up to honor those who have given so much for our freedom.

An American flag that was flown over the State Capital was presented to the mother of a fallen soldier.

Some brought their children so they could learn to appreciate the price veterans pay for all of us.

"It's important to us to honor the veterans of our country, to honor the things that our country has done, and to teach our kids also that it's very important to remember and know about these things because my grandfather served in the army," says Jana Baldwin, a woman who attended the ceremony and brought her kids.
