VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Red Cross chapter in Valdosta showed its support for veterans Tuesday.

Volunteers with the chapter visited seven nursing and retirement homes in the Valdosta-Lowndes County area Tuesday and handed out carnations to veterans there. One World War II veteran said it's nice to know that the community thinks about its veterans.

"It's a surprise and an honor," responded Frazier, after being asked what he thought about receiving his carnation. "I thank you very much. God bless all of you."

In all, the volunteers handed out over 100 carnations to veterans Tuesday.
