In deadly battle line”

  1. Absolutely beautiful ceremony honoring one of our Nation’s hero’s and the establishment Post 688, the second oldest VFW Post in Texas. One hundred years after his death in the forests of France, the proud members of Post 688 honored his sacrifice with a solemn ceremony held at Veteran’s Plaza, Boerne, Texas. This is what makes America great, never forgetting the ultimate sacrifice of our fallen men & women. God bless America.
