Brazos Valley residents gathered Sunday at College Station's Veteran's Park to pay tribute to the men and women who have fought and protected our country.

Among those in attendance were the Ross Volunteers, the Aggie Band, College Station Mayor Ron Silvia, and State Senator Steve Ogden.

One veteran in attendance shared the importance of remembering those who protect our country and our way of life.

"Most of the veterans do it because they believe in it and they believe that the nation should should be free and that we would like to protect other people's right to be free also," said L.G. Crum, a Vietnam War vet.

Members of the Ross Volunteers fired a 21-gun salute, as onlookers stood in support and appreciation remembering those who have a selflessly served our country.
