Throughout our nation’s history, service men and women have gone bravely into battle, risking their lives and livelihoods, sacrificing their safety to defend America. When their duty is done, many return home to life as it was, but so many did not and still don't. America’s veterans have honored us with their service and selfless duty. It is now our turn to honor them. For the first time, ETVM will pay tribute to some of our most courageous heroes – our East Texas Veterans. The East Texas Veterans Memorial will celebrate those men and women who fought bravely in every war and conflict for America. This is your opportunity to honor a Veteran and support the East Texas Veterans Memorial. Anyone who has served honorably, or who is still serving in any branch of the U. S. Armed Forces or its allies, from the Revolutionary War to the present, are eligible. Please enjoy the tune we provided while browsing the links below.
