Yellow Ribbon Day

Yesterday was yellow ribbon day at Hunter Army Airfield. Hundreds of military families and friends gathered at the post chapel. They wrote the names of their deployed loved ones on yellow ribbons, then hung them on what they call a "memory tree" next to the chapel.

"What we hope is that this is a place of reflection and a place of memory so that in the future, when they're perplexed, worried, anxious, they can come and find a place of solace," said Chaplain John Foxworth.

They'll keep the ribbons on the tree until all the troops come home.
