Montgomery’s Memory Park Unveils Honor Flight Eagle Monument

The City of Montgomery, in the Lake Conroe area unveiled the Honor Flight Eagle  on Thursday  in Montgomery’s Memory Park which will be honoring World War II veterans.

The unveiling had more than 100 attendees, including veterans, civic leaders and schoolchildren. The dedication of the Honor Flight Eagle will be the focal point of the new Veterans Plaza at Memory Park, located in Montgomery, Texas.

The 13-foot-tall statue, provided by LSHF director Jack McClanahan, features an eagle atop a pedestal with plaques engraved with the names of the more than 500 World War II veterans who participated in the five LSHF trips to Washington, D.C.

With the support of the local community, LSHF transported veterans to Washington, D.C., to tour military memorials and monuments built to honor the service of military veterans — especially the World War II Memorial at no expense to the veterans.

The event featured comments from many of Montgomery’s leaders.  These leaders included County Judge Alan Sadler, Montgomery Mayor Travis Mabry, the Rotary Club of Lake Conroe President Mike Berger, LSHF director Jack McClanahan, and Brenda Beaven.

A medley of patriotic songs was provided by the Montgomery Elementary School choir. Freedom Flight provided two airplane flyovers, including a missing man formation.

The  Veterans Plaza will provide an area to honor veterans from every branch of service, as well as police and firefighters who die in the service of their country and community, when it is complete.

Attendees were encouraged to tour Memory Park following the dedication ceremony.  This is a project sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lake Conroe with support from the community. There were approximately 500 American flags  positioned around the pond in the center of the park.

We are very proud to honor our veterans in the Lake Conroe area for their service in our country and community.

    We would like to know when this monument was dedicated. My husband, Col (ret.) Leopold Ortiz is one of the Honor Flight veterans. At age 91 he is writing his memoirs and would like to include his participation in his notes.

    Thank you for your help!.
