CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WAND) -- Carriage Crossing Senior Living held their second annual Honoring Our Heroes event.

The event was to honor all veterans that are a part of Carriage Crossing. The Boy Scouts Troop 13 presented the flag and followed with the Pledge of Allegiance, a pinning ceremony and an exiting of the flag.

"I know it's just one day out of the year but we want to honor them as much as we can," said Marketing Director Angela Commons.

The senior house currently has 13 veterans and also honored one additional person who recently passed away.

Commons: "We have World War 2 veterans that live in our community, we also have Vietnam veterans, and Korean veterans, we just wanted to show them some type of honor."
