CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — If you happen to see a veteran today, be sure to thank them because today is their day.
This Veterans Day ceremony held this morning was one of several observances happening around the Coastal Bend and around the country.
On this day, we honor the men and women who served our country in the armed forces.
Veterans at today's Sherrill Park observance say days like this fill their hearts with gratitude as well.
“I'm glad to see so many people here today,” Diane Brady of the U.S. Marine Corps said. “I came in the cars, there were a lot more cars than last time I was here. It fills your heart and I just … it's very sentimental, very sentimental and we thank everybody for coming out.”
