November 6-12th join the Military Partnership of West Central Texas in celebrating our military veterans, from all branches of service, of all eras for Veterans week! Abilene is especially proud to salute women in service this year, featuring the Texas Women Veterans Roll Call and the parade’s Grand Marshall, Ellen Webb, Abilene’s oldest Marine. The Partnership hopes that the Veteran Appreciation Ribbons project will help us get everyone wearing a little bit of patriotism during Abilene Celebrates Veterans Week. Donations for the ribbons will provide critically needed funds for Taylor County veterans.

Ribbons are currently available at the following locations:
• 2-1-1 Texas A Call for Help, 240 Cypress ST
• Cumulus Radio, 2525 S. Danville DR
• FOX-15 TV, 4127 S. Danville DR
• Taylor County Veterans Service Office, 400 Oak ST
• Texas State Veterans Cemetery at Abilene, 7457 W Lake R
