Throughout the Vietnam War era, as many as 208 Tarrant County residents lost their lives. There is no local memorial or monument to honor their sacrifice. But that is about to change.
The Fort Worth Aviation Museum has been researching what is would take to erect a memorial in Veterans Memorial Park, 4120 Camp Bowie Blvd. Recently a group of veterans and concerned residents met to discuss the logistics of establishing a memorial.
A September 2020 dedication is tentatively planned during the Medal of Honor Society’s annual meeting in Fort Worth.
A design contest is scheduled for youths in the community to submit designs for the memorial. Prizes will be awarded, and the winning student’s design will be transformed into a finished memorial.
