Honoring Veterans

The Robert E. Lee High School Visual and Performing Arts Department in Tyler will be presenting the USO Show “Vietnam: A Musical Tribute to Vets” on May 29-31 and June 1.

They also are asking for the public to submit pictures of veterans who served in all branches between 1965 and 1975 to be used in two tributes during the show — a tribute to those still living and a memorial for those who gave their lives.

Photos should be sent via email to by Monday, May 19. Alternately, photos can be dropped off at the front desk of the high school.

The show will feature music and dance from the era.

A portion of all ticket sales will go to benefit Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit organization that sends letters and packages to current soldiers to help lift their spirits.

Photos should include the subject’s name, rank, branch of service, years of service, where they served, and whether the veteran is still living or deceased. If deceased, the photo should include the year of birth and year of death.
