Local Effort Underway to Support Wreaths Across America
I am proud to be part of a community in Galveston, Texas that honors its heroes. Whether it’s former Constable Clint Wayne Brown playing TAPS as an entire cruise ship spontaneously applauds this past Veterans Day or Commander Michael Caballero leading the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 880, Galveston has a special way of ensuring our Veterans are not forgotten...
