We want to honor those who gave some or all for us, please take the time to make sure anyone that you love who served has a place of honor on the Port Aransas Parks and Recreation Port A Honors and Remembers Tree. We are asking you show your love and support of current and past U.S. soldiers this holiday season by honoring them with a star or a ribbon placed on the patriotic Christmas tree to be displayed in the Community Center.

Make sure I have the best information on every veteran you know. We really want to include a photo (does not have to be old or military photo).

The tree will be decorated with ribbons and stars for service members as follows: Yellow ribbon for those who are deployed, blue star for U. S.- based troops, gold star for fallen soldiers, silver star for those who were wounded, white star for those missing in action, purple star for those who received honor and red star for all veterans not fitting in any other category.

All previous ornaments will be redone, so please make sure we have your's as soon as possible even if they were on a previous ornament. We tried hard last year to remake and add new after Hurricane Harvey, but time got away from me.

Photos may be brought by City Hall or the Parks & Rec/Nature Preserves office to be scanned & returned, or emailed to Parks & Rec Community Program Coordinator Pam Greene at Please specify the branch of service and which category. I believe are were several red stars (all veterans) who were also fallen, wounded or received metals or ribbons, as well as many with no photo.

Veterans do not have to come from or live in Port Aransas. They can be friends or relatives of anyone with ties to our town. As long as they matter to you, we want to recognize them.

Everyone has some connection to our armed forces. We are all grateful for the life we get to live because of them. Let?s all show support for our soldiers and families this Christmas.
