Texas veterans receive show of appreciation

A small token of respect and appreciation was given to a group of veterans on Thursday by a local auto dealership.

Approximately 15 veterans gathered at Jim Bass Cars and Trucks on Houston Harte Expressway, where they were presented with tickets to the upcoming Travis Tritt “Legends of Country” concert series.

The gathering allowed veterans from the Korean conflict, Vietnam and Iraq to share stories and raise awareness for Texas Veterans for Veterans, a group focused on providing for the needs of Texas veterans and their families.

However, seeing each other was nothing new for most of the vets.

“It’s normal.” Vietnam veteran Otis Woodfin said. “We’re together all the time. I love all these guys.”

The Travis Tritt concert will take place at McNease Convention Center Jan. 10.
