Tallahassee - May 18, 2012 - 11:44pm
Tom and the Cats played at Friday's Downtown Get Down for 'Operation Thank You' hosted by Leon County and Veterans Events in Tallahassee.
In addition to the music, food and celebration there was a thank you card station where people could write a note to soldiers serving overseas now.
Those notes will now be sent out in care packages.
"The veterans have given so much, they have sacrificed so much. Some of them they are alive. the least we can do is to honor them and I hope that this becomes an annual event," said Leon County Commission Chairman Akin Akinyemi.
The celebration continues Saturday at 9:15am with a parade to honor veterans. That parade will be near the civic center.
