Patriotic Concert Honors Military Servicemen

A local church played host to a patriotic concert on Sunday, honoring both active and retired members of the military.

The patriotic celebration, titled "Homeland," was held at Highland Baptist Church in Meridian and combined the choirs of Oak Grove Baptist Church and Highland Baptist Church, along with the orchestra at Highland. Officials say you can't honor our military enough these days.

"I think patriotism in a lot of folks just needs to be rekindled every year," Rev. Franklin Denham, Minister of Music, says. "I think that folks need to hear and experience the patriotic music every year."

Sunday's celebration was the 25th annual event that Highland Baptist Church has played host to. Mississippi Congressman Greg Harper was on hand for the event.
