Veterans' Museum - Laredo
Earlier today, City of Laredo Mayor Raul G. Salinas and City Manager Carlos Villarreal joined Webb County Judge Danny Valdez for the Veterans’ Museum Contract signing ceremony. All expressed their respect, appreciation and honor to the local veterans who served, as well as their comrades who did not return, with this museum where all will “remember the sacrifice and courage of the true heroes in our community, who have made our freedom and our way of life possible for us all. It is our honor to give them their place of honor, respect and reverence,” said Salinas. Villarreal pointed out the commitment to this project by both the Laredo City Council and Webb County Commissioners Court, who, even in these difficult economic times, set aside monies for this project. Salinas, Valdez and Villarreal sign three copies of the contract, while local veterans look on and smile at this historic day, the first step in making the Veterans’ Museum a reality.
