Edgewood DistrictVeterans (EDV) Organization:
Purpose and Mission
After eight years, the Edgewood District Veterans, comprised of U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Air Force (Vietnam) veterans has grown in numbers and commitments.Today, there are 80 members, of which, 60 are active members. The group dedicates themselves to schedule and work annual fundraiser activities such as Golf Tournaments, Dances, Raffles, and sale of Spaghetti Dinners. The monies from these activities go toward the purchase of Thanksgiving food baskets, winter coats for children, school supplies, college Scholarships, and a general fund to use for unexpected costs and donations.
Some accomplishments attributed to EDV include erecting a monument to honor all school district veterans who served during the Vietnam Era, 1959-1975; the renaming of Cenizo Park Elementary School to Roy Cisneros Elementary to honor the late USMC Sergeant awarded the Navy Cross and the Texas Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously. EDV also collaborated with Prairie View A&M University and the Edgewood Independent School District to assist with volunteers and trainers for their Take A Stand and Mentoring Programs.
EDV is committed to God, Country, Honor and Service to our Community
