For those who served in the RVAH Community, their families, and friends!
March 29th, 1973 was the "official" cease fire date in Vietnam. Some states have officially recognized this day (or tomorrow for some unknown reason) as Vietnam Veterans Day.
So to all of you (and you already know who you are) who served...Thank You For Your Service!!
IT TOOK 41 YEARS.........WHY?
Nestled in dappled shade on the northeast side of the Capitol grounds, the Texas Capitol Vietnam Veterans Monument will stand as a permanent reminder that 105 Texas men who answered the nation’s call remain Missing In Action in Vietnam. It will honor 17 Native Texans who earned the nation’s highest commendation, the Congressional Medal of Honor. And it will forever be a place where visitors can reflect on and honor every Texan who fought for and served the country with honor and courage during America’s war in Vietnam. The Monument's dedication was on Saturday March 29, 2014.
