Kilgore Kids Honor Vets

Some East Texas children did their part to honor veterans in Kilgore today. The student body of "Maude Laird" middle school presented individual flags to veterans at a ceremony in the school gym. Congressman "Louis Gohmert" was the keynote speaker, and later a special flag was presented to the father of a Kilgore soldier who was killed in the Iraq war.

The effort by the school was extremely impressive to veterans. The children also held a symbolic "roll call" of the names of East Texas veterans.
