Warrior’s Weekend Luncheon in Cuero

More than a hundred soldiers enjoyed a luncheon this afternoon at the Cuero Veterans of Foreign Wars. Cuero Pilot Club held a lunch for our warriors as they made there way from Fort Hood this morning. Cuero’s Smokey Wilson played music at the event.

Veterans and their families enjoyed food and community as they came together to kick off Warriors Weekend and celebrate before heading to Victoria.
One soldier shares what his first Warriors Weekend means to him. “It’s gives a sense of community. Just go out and have fun pretty much and it gets us away from work,” said Jacob Arends.

The soldiers will have a fish fry and poker tournament tonight in Port O’ Connor. Saturday morning they’ll begin the fishing tournament.
