Lubbock Honors Veterans of Hub City

"A Night of Thanks" at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center honored our veterans, past and present, with a color guard presentation, live music, and key note speaker Roy Velez who recognized veterans from each era, along with living P.O.W's.  

"To say thank you for writing a blank check for our freedom, because we enjoy it every day, they're the ones who are paying for it," said Jason Robinson of America Supports You.

"I feel proud and I really thank them a lot, because it shows that they really appreciate what we've done and what they are doing for other military servers that are still there," said Marine Corps. Veteran Eduardo Martinez.

The event was sponsored by members of the Lubbock chapter of America Supports You, along with help from United Supermarkets and American State Bank.
