Honoring Veterans at the Vietnam Wall

On September 9th, TX-262 cadets volunteered to assist at the Vietnam War Memorial Wall traveling exhibit in Plano, Texas. It is an 80% replica of the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington D.C. and contains the names of all those who lost their lives in the war. Our squadron searched to find the 24 men from our own Grayson County, Texas whose names were on the Wall. A cadet would then do a pencil etching of the name when it was found. We also visited the boot memorial that Grace Outreach Church in Plano set up in honor of the service men and women from North Texas who have given their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We were privileged to have this opportunity to show our respect and to give thanks to our Vietnam Veterans for their service and sacrifice. We are thankful for all our military service men and women who have served and are serving our nation around the world.

Texoma Composite Squadron was given the opportunity to participate in our first recruitment event, which was held in Downtown Sherman on July 9th. “Christmas in July” was celebrated throughout the community with fun crafts, games, and a visit from St. Nick! According to the Herald Democrat, “this is the fourth year of the event and it brought about 62 booths to the area around the courthouse as well as surrounding streets. Each booth had a free activity or toy for children.” Our squadron provided children with a fun ornament to make and bring home as well as coloring pages. We would like to thank Downtown Sherman NOW! and all of the organizers for putting together this event and allowing us the opportunity to be a part of it.
