Date: May 19, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM CDT
Salute to Aransas County Military is a tribute to citizens and soldiers from our area serving in World War I, World War II and the Cold War. The Heldenfels brothers received a contract during World War I to build wooden ships to carry cargo. In World War II, the Westergard-Rice Company built sub-chasers which served all over the world, and the Rockport Air Force Station protected our borders during the Cold War. Residents participated in black outs, rationing, surplus collections and other patriotic duties. This exhibit will be on display until Sunday, July 9, 2018.
