30th ANNIVERSARY OF THE KOREA/VIETNAM MEMORIAL
This coming November 12 at 6:30 pm, we will celebrate the dedication of the Korea/Vietnam Memorial here in Texarkana. Yes, thirty years ago, during a monsoon like storm we held the dedication services for the Korea/Vietnam Memorial. We have added names and updated the status of some whose remains were returned over the years, we have added the POW/MIA enlarged bracelet and the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial at the site. We have redone part of it after a car crashed into part of it. We have held Memorial Day, Veteran Day, POW/MIA, World War II Commemorative, Korea War Commemorative, Vietnam War Commemorative services, Flag services, Tet services, 20th Anniversary services, Support the Troop rallies, and other services at the site. We have shed blood, sweat and tears at this site. We have shared trials and tributations. We have laughed and we have cried. We have celebrated new found friends and we have mourned lost friends. We have recalled past times and we have prayed for future times. We have honored friends and family. And yes we have discussed and cussed the wannabees, those who steal the Valor of others. We've been hot, we've been cold. We've been dry and we've been wet. But the main thing is we have done all of this together, as brothers and sisters. Am I am very proud of that!!!
We will have a 30th Anniversary Re-Dedication Service at the Korea/Vietnam Memorial on Monday, November 13, 2018 @ 6:00 pm. The public is invited! Korea and Vietnam veterans are asked to attend!
