We are fortunate to live with so many freedoms but that is because of brave men and women before us fought for those freedoms. And this weekend in Bullard, Texas is the Texas Veterans Military Show 2022 honoring America’s Veterans. The event and classic car show is taking place this Saturday, October 8th at 655 S. Doctor M Roper Parkway (69 S.) in Bullard, Texas. 

If you can’t make the event on Saturday, there will be people lining up at the Tyler Pounds Regional Airport at 5:30pm on Thursday to welcome some of the Medal of Honor recipients. This is not something you need to sign up for, just show up with a flag to show these heroes they are appreciated.
