The Cavalla Historical Foundation hosted a wonderful remembrance ceremony at Seawolf Park on Memorial Day. Col. Kelley Crooks, USAF (ret) served as emcee to an audience of over 150 guests, including veterans from WWII, the Korean Conflict, VietNam, Desert Storm, and OIF/OEF. District 1 Councilwoman Amy Bly joined us as well as members of the Lone Star WWII Living History Crew and US Submarine Veterans Group to honor those that gave all for the cause of liberty and freedom. The audience enjoyed special music from Maria Thorne, Britney Doyal and Heidi Lirette. Thanks to grace2Go coffee and the Galveston Island Rotary for the refreshments.
