Abraham Lincoln once said, “Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause.” It is this notion that embodied the second annual Veteran Fest held at the Downtown Event Centre on Sunday, Aug. 5. Veterans of Southeast Texas and beyond were celebrated at the veteran focused festival hosted by Young Americans Overseas (YAO) and sponsored by Humana and Marvic International LLC Construction. The event was free and also offered street tacos, drinks and live music with a petting zoo and face painting available for children at no charge.
