A local woman invites 11 News into her home to show how she celebrates Veterans Day everyday.

Mary Gallegos has a wall dedicated to the veterans in her family that she is so very proud of.

There’s pictures of her husband, three sons, and four grand children.

Along with the photos, a shadow box hangs holding honors her husband received, two of which the purple heart and the brass star.

The commemorative wall is cherished by her and her family, and even people who visit her home.

Mary Gallegos has an exciting event coming up as her grandson will receive his wings.
