Houston Automobile Dealerships Association contributed $125,000 to support the “Price of Liberty” Monument that will be placed at the Texas Capitol to honor the Veterans and their Families that have served since 9/11/2001.
The monument is fully funded and under construction now, thanks to the generous donations of HADA and greater Houston car dealers Gullo Toyota, Gullo Ford, Gullo Mazda, John Eagle Honda and Gillman Acura.
An additional goal of the Texas War Memorial, in addition to building “The Price of Liberty” Memorial at the Texas Capitol, is to capture the faces of service members, families and the stories of the Veterans and the families that served in the Global War on Terror and Overseas Contingency Operations. Their intent is to archive the photographs, videos and stories online as a “Living Memorial” of Texans affected by the war after September 11, 2001.
Submissions are welcome: If you served in The Global War on Terror or were a family member of a deployed service member, please consider contributing to the “Living Memorial.” Submissions by anyone, including Veterans, family members and friends, and civilians (contractors, media, etc.) who served (or know about someone’s service or story) after September 11, 2001 are welcome.
