Gold Star Mothers Honored

CORPUS CHRISTI - The Army National Guard honored a special group of mothers at the Armory on Horne Road.

Gold Star Mothers from all over the Coastal Bend were recognized at a special ceremony. They are moms are those who have lost a son or daughter in combat. The ceremony recognized the mothers' sacrifice for our nation's freedom.

"We are very happy that they've done this for the mothers that are here because I know that their loved ones will always be with them, and this is something to let the people know that they gave their lives for something that they believed in," said Guadalupe Urtado, whose brother died in Vietnam.

State Senator "Chuy" Hinojosa was the guest speaker at Thursday's event.
