A ground breaking ceremony for the veterans musical park in Cuero took place Friday.

"Very happy, enthused and I'm proud," says Peggy Ledbetter, Organizer/Chair person of DeWitt County Historical Commission.
The name of this park is let freedom ring to show support to those who served our country.
"It is to remember all veterans of any military service since the beginning of our country," tells Ledbetter.
Ledbetter explains what this park will bring to the community.
"It will bring a sense of pride and i think it does, i believe today the people i saw how proud they were this is coming together," exclaims Ledbetter.
City Council approved the plans for let freedom ring park. A place for all of Cuero to enjoy.
"It will be a great asset to the community, especially since there is not another one around in the area. We are looking forward to it and just cant wait to see it," adds Raymie Zella, City Manager.
Lynn Wolf is a Vietnam Veteran..
"I think it's a wonderful deal that they really got into," says Lynn Wolf, Veteran.

He wants all veterans to take this message away from the park.
"They're still important, so important to the community. When we came home it wasn't that way and i think finally the tide has turned and they see themselves being looked at as heroes," declares Wolf.
Ledbetter says the community paid for much of the 80,000 dollar project.
"No grants, this has all come from either people buying pavers, cash donations, or saying i want to purchase this. The flag poles, all the instruments, the big bell in the middle that's all been paid for," explains Ledbetter.
 
Construction is set to begin in the coming weeks and they plan to have it finished by the end of September.
