The Bandera Honors Veterans Committee is geared up to hold its 4th Annual Veterans Day celebration this Saturday, November 8th starting at 9:30AM with the flag raising ceremony at the Bandera County Courthouse.
The Committee will honor local veterans as well as local elected officials after the flag raising, to include County Judge Richard Evans, and County Commissioners and City Mayor. Guest speaker will be Bridadier General Victor M. Ortiz, Jr. US Army who resides in Castroville. After the ceremony, a parade will commence down Main Street starting at 11AM. Lunch will be served for all the veterans of the county and distinguished guests after the parade.
There will be several vendors in place at the courthouse, including non profit agencies and Texas Veterans Commission representatives to help veterans find employment and services in the area. I will be there as Bandera County Veteran Service Officer to speak to veterans about VA services that they are entitled to, and how to go about receiving those benefits.
I look forward to the celebration and getting the opportunity to meet the veterans and their families. Please join us for this important day of honor for those who sacrificed so much for our well being and freedoms. To contact me with your VA related questions, please call me at 830-460-1643.
