HEB and the Texas War Memorial Foundation will honor Military Appreciation Day by unveiling the Texas War Memorial replica at a Central Texas HEB store.

The event will take place at the HEB store located at 1101 W. Stan Schlueter Loop in Killeen on July 1, at 11 a.m.

During the unveiling, HEB will also present the foundation with a $50,000 check for the monument, as well as recognize 22 HEB Partners for their service in the Armed Forces.

The original monument, entitled “The Price of Liberty,” will be installed at the Texas State Capitol (12th Street and San Jacinto) on December 2, 2017, to recognize military members from all branches of service and their families who served in the Global War on Terror since September 11, 2001. 

“It is our great honor and privilege to recognize the heroic service of our veterans, active-duty service members and all of their families making great and unheralded everyday sacrifices for our country,” said Debbie Schmidt, HEB Unit Director.
