Gregg County 911 Service

On the steps of the Gregg county courthouse... East Texans held the first annual "patriots day." The program featured a special guest speaker... A red cross volunteer who worked at ground zero in New York.

Today's remembrance was organized as a way not just to recall the events of 9-11... But to recognize that in a time of crisis, people were ready to help.. Organizers hope to make the remembrance and annual event.
