EL PASO — Independence Day is the day we celebrate our nation's independence but it's also when some people thank our veterans.
That's what El Paso city representative Carl Robinson did at the annual 4th of July BBQ for veterans and their families at the Ambrosio Guillen State Veterans Nursing home.
"It's a treat to all of the veterans and to show the appreciation for independence day and also that we appreicate their service to our country," Robinson said.
Veterans were served hot dogs, ribs and potato salad in thanks for their service.
