Councilman T.J. Patterson and Sheriff David Gutierrez joined the city for the Second Annual Memorial Day service at the City of Lubbock Cemetery. The United States Marine Corps. and the Boys and Girl Scouts showed their appreciation by contributing to the service. Both veterans and civilians remember why it's important to celebrate this day.

"I'm just proud to be here today, see everybody else that's able to be here and I think about the one that's not," says M.E. Brazeal, World War II Veteran.

"Just Memorial Day. It felt like it was a good time to remember the soldiers and everything that they did even though I didn't know any of them still," says Boy Scout Ben Robinson.
