Camp Fannin Vets Donate Money

A group of veterans are making sure a memorial at Camp Fannin will stay beautiful for years to come.

The Camp Fannin Veterans Association presented a $10,000 check Saturday to the UT Health Center at Tyler. The money will go towards maintenance of a memorial dedicated there last year.

UT Health Center sits on ground once used by the military to train soldiers during World War II.

More than 150,000 soldiers trained at Camp Fannin. A plaque describing the history of the camp was also unveiled at the ceremony.
