Flags planted to remember veterans

CANTON, TX (KLTV) - Van Zandt County residents are doing their part this holiday weekend to support our current military, veterans, and to remember those that gave their lives for our freedom.

The Van Zandt County Veterans Memorial Plaza stands high above the ground with different memorials, statues, and units representing the five branches of the military.

In remembrance of the counties departed military citizens, more than two hundred flags will be planted Saturday evening, July 2nd. That ceremony will be held at 6PM at the intersection of Highway 19, and Highway 243 in Canton.
