HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- WSAZ is proud to now air the National Anthem every morning.

Members of the Marine Corps League stopped by our station in Huntington to present WSAZ with a Distinguished Service Award for airing the National Anthem every morning.

Members of the Marine Corps League stopped by our station in Huntington Friday afternoon to present WSAZ with a Distinguished Service Award.

"Thank you for being patriotic and doing that," our nation's veterans told WSAZ Anchor Katie Wilson as they presented the station with a certificate. "It means a lot to us."

Here's the story about why we are bringing back an old tradition. You can also watch the entire video that airs daily at 4:30 a.m. preceding WSAZ Sunrise.

We were so touched by this surprise visit that we just had to grab a camera and share it with all of you!
