Red Cross salutes America's troops

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - America's men and women in uniform were the center of attention at the Country Club of Jackson Thursday.

The American Red Cross honored those who have served or are still serving in the armed forces in a fun-filled salute.

Big band sounds of the 1940's and 1950's filled the air from Los Angeles-based group "The Swing Dolls".

The highlight of the evening was a musical tribute to each branch of the armed forces, and there were live and silent auctions.

WLBT News Director Dennis Smith served as master of ceremonies.
