City shows support for troops

August 3, 2005

Valdosta - A South Georgia city is showing support for members of our armed forces.

Valdosta city workers hung yellow ribbons along the downtown streets Wednesday. City leaders are encouraging people to hand the ribbons on the doors of their homes and businesses to show appreciation for the military, and support for the family members of the local National Guardsmen who were recently killed in Iraq.

"Letters and cards are wonderful, but when they see that the city is united behind them, that's even better," said Mayor John Fretti.

The yellow ribbons are available for $5.00 at any Valdosta florist.
