Veterans in Ringgold sure got a treat Sunday afternoon, but it did not have anything to do with food.

The group called Jericho Brass held a concert on the lawn of Ringgold City Hall.

Now, if you have never heard of them, they are a 28-piece british style brass band, and they performed songs like Amazing Grace.

We caught up with one Marine who says it was an emotional day, but a great day.

Robert Clark, a retired Marine, says, "A lot of my friends, a lot of them are passed away now, and I wish they could still be here to enjoy the day with me."

The event was part of Ringgold's annual Festival of Flags.

Flags lining the city's streets represent veterans we lost.
