SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Many folks took a moment to honor the military in our area Sunday, including those at Savannah Christian Church.
Today the congregation held its annual Massing of the Colors. The event remembers active and reserve military units, veterans and civic organizations.
The colorful presentation of flags is part of the patriotic ceremony filled with many reminders of our military's sacrifice and service.
"Well, it's truly one the most special days in my military career to kind of be able to say a few words, not just back at our veterans who have served, you know, over the course of their particular tenure in the military, but also to talk a little bit about what our flag represents and what that really means to all of us as Americans," said Colonel John Hort.
The Massing of the Colors is sponsored each year by the Savannah chapter of the Military Order of the World Wars.
