Granite slabs that will be part of a Vietnam War memorial at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen arrived for installation Friday morning.

The massive memorial will be the first tribute to Vietnam Veterans to be mounted in a Veteran’s cemetery, in the state of Texas.

Troy Kelley, a Vietnam Veteran and renowned sculptor, donated his time and talent to design and coordinate the construction of the memorial.

Kelley also designed the Fort Hood Memorial dedicated to the victims of the 2009 terror attack that killed 13 people.

The formal dedication of the memorial is scheduled for 10 a.m., Monday, August 28.
