Pay it Forward: Veterans remembering those who have died
SOUTHEAST TEXAS-By: Leslie Rangel
The service group is made up of all volunteers from different branches of the military.
All members are retired and spend their time helping other veterans, but mainly paying tribute to those who have died.
They practice playing taps adn shooting guns to honor veterans at veteran memorial services.
At no fee or cost to the family, they have a saluting ceremony for those who have died, like a ceremony held at a national cementary.
They present the family members with a retired flag.
In addition to travel costs, the group must also provide for their own full uniform.
So as part of our Pay it Forward, someone nominated John Brian, the treasurer of the organization as a way of saying thank you for all they do not only for veterans who have died, but also the surviving family members.
