TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

Hundreds of people came together to honor veterans in Tuscaloosa Monday.

This year is the first time that the Tuscaloosa VA Hospital and the Veterans Memorial Park Committee combined their two programs.

Supporters honored the lives and sacrifices made by our veterans. Guest speaker Lt. General Willie Williams told the audience there are few honors greater than serving one's country.

"We know that there's been many who served even into death. I mean, they have given their lives so that we can have gatherings like this today," Williams said.
