About The Event

Flags will be planted along the NW Military cooridor in honor of Veteran's Day Sunday, November 8th.

In the 1940s the Veterans that served in the Korean War and World War II would trek 22 miles on foot from Fort Sam Houston to Camp Bullis for artillery training. They did this first thing Monday mornings and it would take them all day to reach their destination (Camp Bullis).  They trained Tuesday to Thursday at Camp Bullis because artillery training wasn't allowed within City limits. Early Friday mornings they would begin their 22-mile trek back double-timed in hopes that they'd have enough 'rest and relaxation' time before their Saturday morning inspections.  The NW Military corridor was designated as the Second Indianhead Division Memorial Highway in 1998 to help commemorate that historical era, making it the perfect location to honor our heroes.
