GAINESVILLE, Tex. (KXII) The most patriotic city in America is outdoing themselves with yet another monument to honor those who served but this one is a little different.
The groundbreaking for the new Gold Star Families Memorial Monument was held in Gainesville Saturday.
The monument will honor those who have sacrificed a loved one for freedom.
Medal of Honor recipient, Woody Williams, has been a driving force behind the project.
He hopes the monument stands as a stark reminder that Freedom is not free and comes at the cost of not only soldiers but mothers, fathers and siblings as well.
