Longview Veterans Ceremony

A reflective and patriotic ceremony was held in Longview Thursday morning to remember Independence Day and the people who fought and defended it. On the lawn of the courthouse square, hundreds gathered for a special program that put the Fourth of July in perspective. Veterans of foreign wars were recognized, and there was patriotic music and solemn times of prayer. For many who attende, it was a time to put extra emphasis on the day we celebrate our independence.
