Veterans and community members gathered Friday at the Veterans Memorial at the Wharton County Courthouse to pay tribute to those who have served in the American military and to remember those who fell in the line of duty.

The solemn ceremony was followed by a luncheon at which former NASA Director Gerald “Gerry” Griffin, himself an Air Force veteran, gave the keynote address.
