After stormy weather cleared from west to east in the early morning hours Saturday, the annual Tailgate with a Hero event took place near Tarrant Lake on the Veterans’ Administration campus in Temple.

The invitation to the event, which was widely circulated via social media, read, “Join us for a tailgate party and open fishing honoring our veterans and their families letting them know that their service and sacrifices are not forgotten!”
