Brownsville Veterans Ask for Help From the Public

Local News

Veteran groups in Brownsville are asking for help from the public and fellow veterans in the Rio Grande Valley.

The Warrior United in Arms of Brownsville is asking for photographs of the Vietnam War era.

They hope to increase their archives and help tell the story of those involved in the war.

 Some of the photographs they plan to find include everyday activities and perhaps heroic shots.

Founder of the Warriors United in Arms Tony Garcia says, “we want to tell the story as complete as possible of valley veterans during the Vietnam war. It doesn’t make any difference if you were an infantry man, an airman, a sea man, or you were back state side. As long as it covers the Vietnam era.”

The Warriors United in Arms would like to have pictures submitted before their Flag Day presentation on June 14.

Donated photos will be duplicated and originals will be returned to their respective owners.

If you have pictures you would like to share with this group, contact them directly at 956-459-9375 or send them an email at
