East Texans Honor Veterans This Memorial Day

Memorial Day is usually a day to relax at the lake, fire up the grill, or take in a baseball game.

But it’s more than a day off.  While we’re enjoying the festivities, it’s important to remember why we’re not at work.  To take time to honor military veterans!

A group gathered in Lufkin Saturday at the Garden of Memories cemetery to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and if you were there you probably saw the multitude of flags.  Groups decorating gravestones with the stars and stripes included VFW Post 1836, the Marine Corps League, and Air Force recruits.

Today the Garden of Memories will host a special speaker, music and a balloon release.

Happy Memorial Day!  And thanks to veterans everywhere.
