Public turns out to honor veterans at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery

By Steve Elliott 502d Air Base Wing Public Affairs

Hundreds of supporters ignored chilly temperatures and rainy conditions to honor veterans of the past and present during the annual Veterans Day memorial at the Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery Nov. 11.

The event included a number of musical interludes from the Texas Children's Choir, a naturalization ceremony for eight new U.S. citizens, readings of the service creeds and singing of the service songs.

The ceremony ended with three volleys of rifle fire from the Fort Sam Houston Memorial Services Detachment and the playing of "Taps."
