Members of each law enforcement agency and fire department from all over North Texas will be participating, many on their off-duty time, to honor these heroes. Spectators are encouraged to stand along the roadways and wave. U.S. flags are encouraged!
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet and honor these recipients of our nation’s highest award for action and bravery above and beyond the call of duty in the face of the enemy. Most people never get to meet one Medal of Honor recipient.
There may be as many as 17 present in Gainesville this year. There are only 81 living Medal of Honor recipients. This is truly a special event. Please join us in honoring these brave men and women.
