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.
