Friday, May 25, 2007

This is Galveston County Chapter 685 of the Vietnam Veterans of America's 14th Annual Watchfire Memorial Day Weekend on the Texas City Dike. We were there today and will be there through the weekend with our Sevices on Sunday evening.
 
Attached are some pictures that we took today s etting up camp and putting together our watchfire.
 
The Texas City parks and Recreation were out putting up the Watchfire Park sign and we got an advance screening.  Mayor Doyle will be dedicating the Park on Sunday the 27th and unveiling the sign.
 
The sign says:

Our chapter is respected within our community and it feels great.  Buddy Farina is Watchfire committee chairperson.
