The American flag flew proudly from the giant flagpole on Nov. 10 outside the Charles T. Doyle Convention Center in Texas City. Families, friends, Rotarians and local dignitaries came together to salute the brave men and women who served. Some of the veterans came dressed in full military uniform, while others proudly wore their military branch insignias.

This annual event is presented by the Rotary of Texas City, led by Rotarian Roger Whitener, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran himself who worked diligently to bring the program to life in remembrance of those who served.
