Veterans’ Memorial Project Committee at Pendleton Park
1425 Morgan Boulevard Harlingen Texas 78551
VMPC , Lenore Combs, 4137 N Minnesota St., Harlingen Texas 78550
This project was the idea of Harlingen area citizens, veterans and the Gold Star families (Families of fallen soldiers), who noted that the community did not have its own Veterans monument.
As Harlingen has grown, so has the desire to honor our Veterans with a Veterans Memorial. With Harlingen’s strong military heritage, the logical course was to pursue the construction of a local memorial. The veterans created a key steering committee and the Harlingen area Veterans’ Memorial Project Committee was formed.
Dedication took place Sunday 11 November 2012. The program of events, photos and the newspaper article are on this website “Home Page".
