About the Exhibit:

Honoring Texas Military Members

November 11, 2015 - February 28, 2016

The UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures has teamed with 11th grade AP History students at Brandeis High School for their latest student exhibit, "Honoring Texas Military Members."

Presented in conjunction with the museum’s "Our Part of Victory: Texans in World War II," the student exhibit expands the scope of service, with profiles of Texans who served in any era.

The class has produced some 25 shadow boxes, with artifacts, images and text from oral histories, citations and biographies. Among those commemorated are sniper Chris Kyle of Odessa, San Antonio native Oliver North, and General Dwight D. Eisenhower of Denison.
