This weekend, please join me in honoring our veterans.
On Monday, Memorial Day, I will be the keynote speaker at the Memorial Day program at the Veterans War Memorial of Texas in McAllen, starting at 9 a.m. McAllen Mayor Richard F. Cortez will give the welcome address and vocalist Stephen Lopez will sing patriotic songs during the program. The roll call of our fallen Valley heroes who lost their lives in Iraq & Afghanistan will also be read.
The Veterans War Memorial of Texas is located at 29th St. & Galveston, just east of the McAllen Convention Center. The public is invited to attend this ceremony to honor and remember all our nation’s fallen heroes. For further information visit: http://www.mcallen.net/veterans/default.aspx
Later that day at 6 pm, I will be a guest speaker at the unveiling of the new statue honoring Medal of Honor recipient Jose Lopez. Please join me for that event and the reception to follow at Mission Historical Museum, 900 Doherty, Mission.
Let us honor our nation’s heroes of yesterday and today.
