Members of the public and military gathered on Saturday to honor every branch of the Armed Forces.
The veterans advocacy group Crusaders for Veterans put on the 2019 Freedom Ball as a way to recognize current and fallen members of every branch of the Armed Forces.
Guests at the event had the opportunity to participate in a silent auction and enjoy a night of entertainment as well.
News 25 Chief Meteorologist Rob Knight also served as the emcee of the event. Crusaders for Veterans Public Relations Director Nikki Ross said, “In the military you’re trained to take care of your brothers and sisters and have their back so that’s pretty much what we do now. We recognize and have their back. Let them know there are still people out there that care for them.”
