Texas has lost a civic and benevolent business leader and a giant in the death of Harold Simmons of Dallas. As much as he has meant to Texas and this country, he also means a great deal to Texas veterans, especially to the Vietnam veterans and their families.
“Mr. Simmons was our first major donor to the Texas Capitol Vietnam Veterans Monument, “said Robert Floyd, Chairman. “He literally gave us the “seed” money to get us started and later gave us a second significant contribution to help with our funding.”
“We join his family and friends in mourning of his passing and shall never forget his support when it was most needed,” Floyd concluded.
The Texas Capitol Vietnam Veterans Monument will be dedicated on the grounds of the Texas State Capitol on March 29, 2014. For more information, please visit our website at www.buildthemonument.org.
