Veterans Ceremony In Longview

   In Longview, East Texans said "thank you" to those who have worn the uniforms, fought in far- away lands and defended democracy with a Veterans Day tradition-- a "roll call" on the courthouse steps. As the hymn of each military branch was played, those from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines stepped forward to be recognized for their service to the country.

   Men and women representing America's military from World War II, to the present were in attendance. Many feel that days like these are a reminder to a new generation that freedom comes at a price. Over 65 veterans attended today's ceremony.
