I was able to attend the dedication ceremony for the Texas Vietnam Veterans Memorial at the Texas Capitol 03/25/2013. The ground breaking ceremony marked the site where Texas will have a memorial for those 3,417 Texas residents who died during the Vietnam war. A National memorial resides in Washington DC to honor ALL deceased Vietnam veterans. Our club, the Lonestar Military Vehicle Preservation Association ( http://www.lonestar-mvpa.org
) supplied three vehicles for the event as well as carried reproduction dogtags of the names of those 3,417 Texas soldiers to the Deep In The Heart foundry in Bastrop ( http://www.deepintheheart.net
), where they will be placed inside the memorial when cast. In many respects, this was the final ride 'home' for these veterans who gave their lives. Also assisting with the event were the Patriot Guard, Combat Vets Assoc, and In Country MC riders.
