Today marks 21 years that area veterans and patriots have gathered each Friday at Monument Terrace in downtown Lynchburg for a weekly Support the Troops rally.   

The rallies began on November 30th, 2001 after the terrorist attacks of 9-11.   Organizer Steve Bozeman says some of the faces have changed over the years.
