Traveling Veterans Memorial Wall

If you haven’t seen the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall, you will soon have that chance. The Wall will be coming to El Campo July 16-20, 2015, and will be set up behind Myatt Elementary School. A special Memorial Service will be held Saturday, July 18, at 10 a.m.
The wall honors, among all the fallen, the 28 service members from the Wharton County area who died in Vietnam or who are still missing. 28 crosses will be placed at the base of the Wall prior to the service to honor the 28 service members. A military ID dog tag with the member's name will hang from their individual cross. Please join me in honoring our fallen heroes.
