Free Ribbons Available For Yellow Ribbon Week

It's yellow ribbon week all this week and Saturday it's "Welcome Home Day."

The Lubbock City Council declared Saturday "Welcome Home Day" in honor of 120 Lubbock soldiers. The troops have been serving in Iraq for the past year and all are returning home this week. You're also asked to wear a yellow ribbon, or tie one around a tree, or sign, to show your support. You can now get free yellow ribbons at any American State Bank, Plains Capital Bank at 4th and Quaker or from any gas station cashier at most United Supermarkets.
