[San Antonio TX] – On May 30th, 2016 (10 am – 11am), American Legion Fred Brock Post 828 held a ceremony unveiling its Veteran Memorial Wall at 3415 Martin Luther King. The key note speaker for this event slated for the event was Texas State Senator José Menéndez.
The Veteran Memorial Wall unveiling was scheduled in due and proper observance of Memorial Day, recalling the memory of the heroic departed and recounting their valiant deeds. According to Post Commander Chuck Landy, “… let us, also, on that day give expression of our reverence and gratitude to those who gave their lives to serve this Country; to acts of respect and care for those soldiers and sailors who have survived the wars in which they were engaged; and in honor of those who are now serving this Country.”
It is the hope of the members of Fred Brock Post 828 that the Veteran’s Memorial Wall will become an icon for the city of San Antonio and an object of pride for the local East Side Community it serves. The Memorial Wall will contain the name, rank and service dates of U.S. Armed Forces veterans. It is open to all veterans, city, state, and country wide. The Post encourages family members and friends of Veterans to submit names of their loved ones for inclusion on the wall.
