Gregg County is honoring our veterans with a special ceremony at the courthouse.

Veterans of all military branches came out to remember and honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Several of our nation's heroes tell us they appreciate the thank you's and well wishes.

"It feels great to be recognized for serving this great country," Air Force Veteran Charles Walker says. "This is a brotherhood, we are all familiy."

One veteran tells us veteran day helps people remember the sacrifices it takes to keep our country safe.
