Capitol for a Vietnam Veterans Monument Ceremony - Monday, March 25, 2013
Monday, March 25, 2013, a dedication ceremony will take place at the Capitol for a Vietnam Veterans Monument. This ceremony is to honor the 3,417 Texans who died in the Vietnam War and will include speakers, a 21 gun salute, and a procession.
It will take place on the South side of the Capitol grounds at 10:00 a.m. The 21 gun salute will take place at about 10:30am. We want to make you aware of this as the salute could be very loud and we do not want anyone to be alarmed by the gunshots.
At 11:15 a.m. the 3,417 sets of dog tags belonging to those Texans who were killed in Vietnam will be placed in two vintage military vehicles and driven to Bastrop. The event is open to the public.
