Submarine Veterans coming to Allen, Texas car show
We are always hearing from several veterans and their heroic stories on ships, land and in the air, but many of our victories and success can also be attributed to our Submarine Veterans.
On March 9 & 10, 2019 the Dallas Submarine Veterans will be coming to the North Texas Classic Car Show & Auction in Allen, Texas at the new Watters Creek Convention Center, 777 Watters Creek Blvd. Along with all the beautiful auction and show cars, visitors will be able to speak with many of these heroic Submarine Veterans.
Doug Gallagher, a member of the Dallas Submarine Veterans told Myclassic News “The mission of the national organization is to perpetuate the memory of our shipmates who gave their lives in the pursuit of their duties, while serving their country. That their dedication, deeds and supreme sacrifice be a constant source of motivation toward greater accomplishments. Pledge loyalty and patriotism to the United States and its Constitution”.
Their local base, which is called Dallas Submarine Veterans, participate in the Dallas Veterans Day parade, award scholarships to worthy kids and grandkids of submarine veterans, support the Womens Veterans Association to provide assistance to homeless female veterans, promote blood drives in the community, participate in a program called Kaps for Kids, where we go to local children’s hospitals and pass out hats/scarves to kids undergoing treatment for cancer and other diseases. Their website is www.dallassubvets.org. They have around 100 members in the Dallas area at this time.
The North Texas Classic and Duncan’s Auctions has teamed up with the Dallas Submarine Veterans for their Dallas shows & auctions hoping to bring more attention to these brave warriors, some who sacrificed all for us and to enjoy not only our classic car industry in peace, but enjoy life as a whole in America.
