Honoring those who served is top of mind this weekend for Veterans Day.

SAN ANTONIO – Larissa Martinez said every Veterans Day, she thinks of her dad.

“Seeing him passing at 47 years old was too young,” Martinez said.

Martinez’s father died by suicide. She said he struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder after he served in the Vietnam War.
