EDINBURG - Patients at Edinburg Children's Hospital released butterflies, as part of a Veterans Day event.

The ceremony helps explain the meaning of Veterans Day to a younger generation. Patients, who are also veterans, were invited to participate in the butterfly release.

A Missouri school ships the monarch butterflies to Edinburg every year to help with their migration.
