Historical Commission thanks community

Dear Editor,

The DeWitt County Historical Commission would like to express our thanks to the City of Cuero, DeWitt County and the citizens for making the Let Freedom Ring Veterans Park a reality. This joint endeavor has produced a unique musical-memorial park honoring veterans of all eras.

The attendance of over 300 at the dedication service was beyond our expectations. We wish to thank the following participants: The Crossroads Community Band, Cuero High School Band, Boy Scout Troop 245, Cuero Junior High and Cuero High School Students, guest speaker Major General Frank Henderson, U.S. Army Ret. Lt. Col. James Natho, U.S. Army Ret. Chaplain Doug Richardson. Also for the news coverage from The Cuero Record, Yorktown News-View and Victoria Channel 25.

As chairman, I thank all the members of the commission for their commitment and work on this project and also the 13 hardworking members of the Veterans Park Committee who have put in hours meeting once a week for over six months plus physical work at the park site. There are too many members who have worked so hard on this project to name them all.

Most of all, we thank you, the citizens, for your support. If you have not seen the Let Freedom Ring Veterans Musical Park located in the Cuero Municipal Park, please visit it and see the names of those who have served our country. It is a memorial to be proud of. We could not have done it without you and our veterans!
