Veterans were honored all over Texoma this weekend.

The Wichita County Veterans Services Office started things Sunday morning with a memorial ceremony at the Wichita County Cemetery, to honor the veterans buried there.

Veterans and family members of veterans also wore old uniforms.

It was a morning of celebration and respect for the countless men and women who have and continue to serve our country.
