[ARCHIVED] San Marcos to Host National Exhibit Honoring Veterans

San Marcos to Host National Exhibit Honoring Veterans

On Thursday, May 18, 2023, residents are encouraged to visit a national mobile exhibit honoring veterans as it makes its inaugural stop in San Marcos. The Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit (MEE) will be on display at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3413, 1701 Hunter Road, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. 

 

The MEE is an interactive exhibit that includes a theater, storyboards, and visual displays that showcase the mission of the non-profit organization Wreaths Across America to remember the fallen, honor those who serve, and teach the next generation the value of freedom. The San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department and Veteran Affairs Advisory Committee requested that the MEE make a stop in San Marcos during its national tour to provide residents an opportunity to learn about and honor local veterans.  

“We’ve been coordinating with Wreaths Across America for the last couple of years to make this stop of the Mobile Education Exhibit possible, and it happening so close to Memorial Day makes the event extra special,” said Parks and Recreation Outreach Coordinator Christie Murillo. “We are excited to provide this opportunity to our community, and we hope everyone who visits the exhibit will walk away it a renewed knowledge and appreciation of the sacrifices made by our veterans and their families. 

 

Residents can visit the MEE for free. City staff, members of the Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee, and volunteers from the VFW will be at the event and available to provide visitors with additional information.
