Ram Chavez and the Veterans Band of Corpus Christi honored local veterans with a concert at the History Center for Aransas County (HCAC), Saturday, June 23.

The concert included paying homage to each branch of the military, Korean War veterans and Vietnam War veterans. Veterans who had served in each of these branches joined Chavez as the military song for their branch was played.

Chavez and the Veterans Band awarded the attending veterans with a commemorative pin and a patch celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War.

Salute to Aransas County Military, the current HCAC exhibit, will be on display until Sunday, July 8.
