CORPUS CHRISTI -- A group of people went to Molina Veterans Park for the park's 25th anniversary.
A monument honoring eight men who died in Vietnam was erected at the park -- on Bloomington street -- in 1987.
Friends and family members remembered those men -- who fought for their country -- today, a day before Veteran's Day.
County Commissioner Joe Gonzalez and City Attorney Carlos Valdez also spoke at the event.
One of the people in the audience -- a veteran himself -- said he knew a couple of the men listed on the monument, and that's why it's become his duty to make sure this area is in the best condition possible.
Victor Trevino, Sr., said, "That's the least I can do for them because they gave the ultimate sacrifice for dying for our country. I'm glad I'm back but I come here two or three times a week and I take care of our monument. This is why I'm here because of them."
