Honoring Soldiers With Balloon Release

More than 2,000 color-coded balloons were released into the air today, in canton.

Red, blue, white, yellow and black balloons were released into the air, each with the name of a soldier attached.

The multi-colored balloons each represented something different: red and blue balloons represented living veterans, white was for deceased vets, yellow for those still serving, and black for P-O-W's and missing soldiers.

The balloons were released as part of a fundraiser for the future Van Zandt County Veterans Memorial.

If you would like more information, or to donate to the memorial fund, please call 903.363.2501.
