Veterans Cemetery Event to Draw More Volunteers

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A special open house of sorts was held Wednesday at the Coastal Bend Veterans Cemetery for a group that has helped lay to rest some of our brave servicemen and women.

"It's always a pleasure and an honor to honor the fallen soldiers as well as their family," said Tony Acevedo of the Memorial Services Detachment. "Their families are very important."

The Memorial Services Detachment, or MSD, is composed of military veteran volunteers who perform the full military honors at the veterans cemetery. They put on the event Wednesday in hopes of luring more area veterans to join them.
