San Benito gathers for Veterans’ Parade and Tribute Ceremony

Local News

SAN BENITO, Texas – Residents gathered for a parade and ceremony dedicated to the brave people of the U.S. Military. Part of their message was to honor those serving along with remembering the many who were killed in action or went missing during their time of service. Members of the San Benito Veteran’s Advisory Board hope the attention this day brings to veterans, can lead to help for those that need it most. 

Michael Watkins, Veterans’ Advisory Board, “We currently have over 22 veterans that kill themselves each day. That is unacceptable in America today. We cannot let that happen to our veterans. Seek help, help them get help. If you know somebody, help them out.”

In addition to the annual tribute, the San Benito Veteran’s Advisory Board recently started a program to install flag poles at veterans’ homes.
