            For the event this weekend -  the Mobile Education Exhibit (MEE) will be in town on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Here are the locations:

TOMBALL, TX— Friday, February 26, 2021.  The next scheduled stop will be at the Tomball Market Place at 14251 FM 2920 in Tomball.  In the Academy parking lot.  Operating from 9:00am to 6:00pm

HOUSTON, TX— Saturday, February 27, 2021. Continuing in Texas, the next scheduled stop will be at Village Plaza at Bunker Hill, located at 9710 Katy Frwy, Houston.  In the Academy parking lot.  Operating from 9:00am to 6:00pm

WEBSTER, TX— Sunday, February 28, 2021.  Still in the area, the next stop is at Baybrook Gateway, located at 1001 Bay Area Blvd, Webster.  In the Ashley Furniture parking lot.  Operating from 9:00am to 6:00pm

1.      Wreathmaker Kit -  this is an unassembled wreath.  A veteran can put it together himself (or we can do it) and take the wreath to a fellow veteran.  My thought of course was to make one for Jim and Stoney.  Then the chapter can take them out at their convenience to the cemetery.

 

2.      Dog Tag Remembrance -  The WAA national office offers a Dog Tag program.  Supply the information of a fallen veteran and replica dog tags are made.  One tag goes with you and the other tag is taken to Maine and hung on one of the balsam trees in their honor.  The family is welcome to come up to Maine and hang the tag themselves.  However, this year our Board of Directors is taking a group trip later this Fall to Maine.  On the trip we will be personally hanging the dog tags from Houston.  There is no charge for this.

 

Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin – For Lone Star members who continued their service after Korea and served in Vietnam as well.  The MEE will have on board the Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pins that are a part of the USA Vietnam War Commemoration.  We will present them their pin as well as a proclamation.  We would like to know who and when they are coming for this so we can prepare
