The park was dedicated on Veterans Day, November 11, 2015 at a Veterans Day ceremony held by the City. Congressman Randy Weber was the our guest speaker. Other participants included: Pastor Jason Burden (Nederland First Baptist Church) who gave the invocation; Nederland High Sschool Band performed the National Anthem; Langham Elementary Singers and Helena Park Elementary Singers performed; 21 gun salute and "Taps" by Southeast Texas Veterans Service Group; and the ribbon cutting ceremony with the Nederland Chamber of Commerce. Links to the Program, Flyer, Photographs and special booklets created by the Langham Elementary School students are provided below.
We thank everyone who joined us as we honored all those that have protected and served our country!

The Dedication completes phase one of the project. Phase two will involved erecting a statue on top of the monument. Phase three will be adding a kiosk so that visitors can access the Veterans Database from the park.
