The mission of the South Texas Iraq Afghanistan War Monument is to honor and preserve our Fallen Warriors who gave their lives and Those who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and all operations in the war on Terror. We will build a monument that will educate our community and our children on the sacrifices to protect our freedoms. This goal is essential to ensure their sacrifice will not be forgotten. We believe that we must preserve the legacy of Our brave men and women and teach the value of remembering their sacrifices. We also want educate our Grateful Nation about the sacrifices being made by Gold Star Families and Service Dogs who support our Warriors that protect our freedoms.
