Make Plans to Attend the Gold Star Memorial on Memorial Day
Memorial Day is May 31st. Here is a way to celebrate our heroes.
On Monday, May 31st, 2021 at 7:30 pm Warrior’s Weekend will honor those Texas Golden Crescent Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, and Coast Guardsmen who gave their lives in defense of this Nation.
Golden Crescent Gold Star Memorial
Patriots will be memorialized at the new Texas Golden Crescent Gold Star Memorial located at the Warrior’s Weekend Field of Honor, 4802 John Stockbauer, Victoria, Texas.
Family members who have lost loved ones are especially encouraged to attend.
The event is open to the public and all are encouraged to attend this dedication. Warrior’s Weekend asks that any family members from Calhoun, Dewitt, Goliad, Gonzales, Jackson, Lavaca, and Victoria counties who are related to those killed in action since World War I make every effort to attend the dedication and share the stories of their loved ones with us as a tribute to their sacrifice.
The ceremony will begin promptly at 7:30 pm with the Crossroads Community Band who will play an appropriate selection of music.
Following the Band’s performance Sergeant First Class Brandon Lloyd, USA (Ret) of Mobile, Alabama will share his story of his first Warrior’s Weekend, and the special connection he has to the Texas Golden Crescent Gold Star Memorial.
SFC Lloyd was a US Army medic deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Attendees will also meet and visit with USN Veteran Eric Scarlett, the sculptor of the “Eternal Flame” which will be lighted inside the Memorial 24/7/365 in honor of our KIA.
Gold Star Families please RSVP as soon as possible to Col Mike with your plans to attend. Please call or text him at (cell) 210-364-4512.
