City partners with National Mounted Warfare Foundation for second year to feature veterans
KILLEEN, Texas (Nov. 1, 2023) – The City of Killeen is partnering with the National Mounted Warfare Foundation for the second year to feature more than 60 military veterans to highlight hometown heroes throughout the month.
The banners will be displayed from Nov. 1 - Nov. 30 and are part of an effort to honor local active-duty, retired or those veterans who have served at Fort Cavazos at any time. This is ahead of the Veterans Day holiday on Nov. 11.
The National Mounted Warfare Foundation began accepting submissions for banners in August, as this was open to the public. The City invites the community to visit the Historic Downtown District, view the banners lining the sidewalks and take photos to save the memory.
The City of Killeen honors those who have and still do sacrifice their lives for our country.
