ODESSA - Veterans were honored at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin on Monday.

Staff, faculty and students paid tribute to those who risk and give their lives defending our freedom.

The school's orchestra performed and ROTC students were there as flags were raised.

The University's President believes everyday should be a day to honor veterans.

“These men and women have put their lives on the line; they have made enormous sacrifices for our country. The recognition that we give them I think is important. I wish we could do more,” UTPB President, Dr. David Watts, said.

A letter was also read at the ceremony to remind us that freedom isn't free.
