Lufkin pays homage to veterans

Today, Lufkin saluted all veterans by waiving their flags and marching in the Veteran's Day Parade downtown.

The key speaker was Al Navarro of VFW. Awards were given at a ceremony after the march including oldest veteran and best float.

Walmart won first place for its float. The Veteran's Day Parade was sponsored by Brookshire Brothers and Coca-Cola.

"It was a great turn-out. We had a lot of fun. Special thanks to the Central High School band. They always come out and support," said Marilyn Davis.
