The children's ministry then passed out special gifts to all of the veterans in the audience.

"We had a lot of companies donated gift certificates, gift cards from businesses in Texarkana. They fought for our country. They deserve everything we can give them," said Jean Petty, Circle J Cowboy Church member.

The church also had a color guard present the flags, special music was prepared for the event, and the pastor prayed over all veterans who've served and sacrificed to protect our country.
