Poppy Drive For Veterans In Longview

A flower to keep disabled veterans remembered, is the focus of an annual drive in Longview this weekend. Members of Longview's American Legion Post 131 were at several locations today, offering a poppy to help disabled vets.  Every year, E.J. Baker, an Operation Desert Storm disabled vet, works to get donations through the poppy drive to help area vets.

He says people should remember what Memorial Day means.  The drive continues Sunday at Sam's Club and Wal-Mart locations.
