A Veterans Day Commemoration draws hundreds of people to San Antonio's Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery--including Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson.
"Today is a day of solemnity, maybe some sorrow and prayer--and I would encourage you to take a moment and do just that" Patterson said, noting he is a fifth generation military veteran himself.
"I had a couple of heroes. My Dad was a hero of mine, my Grandfather was a hero. I had a movie star hero, his name was Audie Murphy" Patrterson said, adding "Regardless of the opinion of the war, the warrior is in a position in this country where he or she should be--a position of respect and admiration."
