A fundraiser held by Texarkana’s Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 278 likley netted more than $10,000 to help disabled and needy veterans in the area. Held March 30 at the Four States Fairgrounds, the second annual Wagons for Veterans event offered a taste of the Old West with chuckwagon-style cooking.
Patrons swarmed the 17 participating chuckwagons, paying $10 apiece and $5 for their children. “Last year, we had 50 tables set up, and they were all full,” Chapter 278 President Greg Beck told the Texarkana Gazette. “This year, we had 1oo tables, and they filled up fast with customers.”
