It was a way say "thank you" to those who have risked their lives to protect our freedom.

The American Red Cross Heart of Texas Chapter hosted the Honor Our Patriots event Monday night.

The first of its kind of event was held at Pebble Creek Country Club in College Station.

The Red Cross honored local past and present military heroes with a dinner.

The guest speaker was Vietnam prisoner of war Dave Carey, who was shot down and imprisoned in Hanoi for five and a half years.

All proceeds from the event go to the work Red Cross provides.
