Assisted Living Center Memorial Day Celebration

Residents of Sterling House of Tyler, an assisted living center, had a special treat Monday. An East Texas vet, who served two combat tours in Vietnam, spoke to them. He explained the meaning of Memorial Day.

"Our country is very important to me, our soldiers are very important to me. This is a very patriotic day, remembering our soldiers in the past who have made the ultimate sacrifice so we can be free." said Lieutenant Colonel John Childs.

There was also a patriotic doll show from several decades. Several of the residents showed off their American pride wearing their red, white and blue.
