One retirement center in North Knoxville took time to honor our fallen troops but also pay tribute to the veterans still with us.
The residents at Broadway Towers honored their veterans with a gathering that included many different family treasures. Family members shared pictures of their loved ones in uniform and military medals, while others told stories.
Remembering our fallen heroes is something special for those at Broadway Towers.
"To honor the people that give their lives and some of them that maybe come," said Josephine Sutton, event organizer.
Organizers say one gentleman even has a letter from the president who recognized his family for having four generations serve in the U.S. military.
