At 11:00 A.M. this Thursday, veterans will tell their story and will be honored with a hero’s welcome, and remember the fallen.

To culminate the event, the Vietnam veterans in attendance will uncase the Space Force flag, officially welcoming the Space Force Guardians to the Lubbock Veterans of Foreign Wars.
