New VFW Commander in Chief Glen Gardner's homecoming celebration kicks off this evening in San Antonio, Texas.
Texas, as you hopefully all know is famous for many things, particularly in the San Antonio area. (Certainly, “Remember the Alamo” should be well etched from our history classes in our youth.)
Event activities for the weekend include: "The Homecoming will kick off Thursday night with a Mexican Fiesta buffet...Friday night is a good, old Texas BBQ with live Country Western music (practice beforehand your line dancing)...On Saturday night, we have a formal banquet planned and dress for this event is tux with tails or formal evening gown. OK; maybe not that formal, but please respect the occasion and dress appropriately."
...we have contracted with a local tour company to provide interesting tours in and around the Alamo city for your sightseeing pleasure. For example, there is one where you can eat at the world famous Menger Hotel and drink a beer at the same bar Teddy Roosevelt recruited his Rough Riders.
