Hundreds turned out at the Panhandle War Memorial to honor those who have served in wars, and those who are currently fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
"That's one of the important things about Veteran's Day, stand up together in support of the people who have served and who are serving regardless of what other differences we may have," said U.S. Representative Mac Thornberry.
The ceremony was filled with fanfare, complete with a fly-over by the Dew Line Squadron.
There was also an unveiling of "The Purple Heart Monument" sponsored by the Panhandle Chapter of the Purple Heart Organization.
Several members were able to attend which was a rare sight because for many of them it is difficult to get out of the house.
"It's wonderful if you can get a majority of them out here, it's hard because the men that are in the Purple Heart organization are World War Two vets," said Antonio Flores, President of the Panhandle Chapter of the Purple Heart.
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were on the minds of many people. Another big issue brought up during this Veteran's Day is the medical care troops receive when they come home.
