Honoring Veterans at the Vietnam Wall

Filed under: Cadet Activities, Squadron News 

by Lt. Col. Jeff Harrell

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.
