HERRIN (WSIL) -- The Herrin American Legion honored veterans today with a free meal.
The Legion held its 2nd Annual Hog Roast.
Organizer Jennifer McIntosh says its just a fun way to honor veterans. "We have fun here it's a lot of camaraderie between the men, the women and the sons and as you see we're filled here everybody loves it here," said McIntosh.
The roast also included a silent auction and bake sale. All proceeds benefit the Lady's Auxiliary for the Fall Thanksgiving Food Giveaway and Christmas Children's Party.
Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted people of other religions. More>>
