In East Waco, there was another somber celebration remembering a veteran and paying tribute to many more on Saturday.

Shirley Sims and several others gathered for this celebration of the military and the sacrifice of its people.

Ms. Sims turns the attention of her ministry to honor those who've sacrificed for our freedom every year.

She says it began after the death of her husband, a highly-decorated Marine.

"In remembrance of my husband, but we're honoring the living veterans. What's important about doing it? I love it, it's my passion. They deserve more but this is what I love doing," said Sims.

Saturday's program included singing, testimonials, and of course, entertainment and food to honor veterans from all branches of military service.
