Texas Vietnam heroes' exhibit coming to Beaumont
The Texas Vietnam heroes exhibit is in Southeast Texas remembering over 3,000 Texans who lost their lives during the war in Southeast Asia.
The exhibit is unique with the use of two dog tags hand embossed with name, rank, branch of service and date of loss.
Those tags arrived by crate today at Edison Plaza in downtown Beaumont.
One tag is for the exhibit, the other will be entombed in the Texas capitol Vietnam veterans' monument.
And this traveling exhibit is special to all who served in Vietnam.
Texas Vietnam veteran, Don Dorsey hand-embossed the tags to have a reflective surface so the play of light and color would bring life to the tribute and exhibit.
The exhibit will open September 18th and will be available to the public through October 6th.
Visitors can see the exhibit from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
Groups of 10 or more are asked to make a reservation by contacting Sheree Pierce by phone at 409-673-0884 or by email at email@example.com
