Westador is home to veterans from almost every branch of service.  Some residents are on active duty now.
 
Nana Midcap is the daughter of Marvin Yarotsky, a World War II veteran and a Westador resident.  Several years ago, she organized a Veterans Reception and Dinner which has become an annual event.
The reception honors veterans and persons on active duty with patriotic songs, displays of military paraphernalia, posters made by Westador's youth, flags, honor guards, and more.  Tattered and worn flags are collected to be properly disposed by a local boy scout troop.
 
The dinner is comprised of "pot luck" dishes furnished by volunteers complete with a special cake.
 
The Hearts Museum of Texas in Huntsville is Helping Every American Remember Through Serving.  Visit their website H.E.A.R.T.S. then visit the museum.
 
Wreaths Across America conducts Wreath Laying Ceremonies nationwide.  In Houston the ceremony is at Houston National Cemetery 10410 Veterans Memorial Drive.  Visit their website for more information about dates and locations of the ceremonies.
 
Longtime Westador resident is interviewed on the Witness to War site.  Click to view Casey's "War Stories".
