About this Event
On May 22, 2021 at 10:30am, the Marine Corps Coordinating Council, Southeast Texas is hosting an event to honor the thousands of local veterans from all Military Branches who served during the Global War on Terror at the Fallen Warriors Memorial on Cutten Road in Houston, Texas. Although this event is focused on the veteran, it will be open to the public to allow those who support our veterans to attend and go beyond saying, “Thanks for Your Service” and actually demonstrate their thanks for the over two decades of selfless service provided by those serving during this time of war.
This is the first annual event of its kind ever hosted to exclusively honor Veterans who have served in what has now become America’s Longest War. This event is long overdue and we need everyone’s support to ensure that ALL post 9-11 Veterans are aware and attend.
After the ceremony, we will conduct a Veterans Engagement Event at the Fallen Warriors Memorial Gallery located at 13455 Cutten Road, Houston. A variety of Veterans Organizations will be in attendance and the gallery will be open for everyone to view the painted portraits of Veterans from Southeast Texas who were killed in action during the Global War on Terror
