Texas State Capitol South Steps
You are invited to pay tribute to Doris "Dorie" Miller and all Texas veterans at the Texas State Capitol on Memorial Day. Governor Rick Perry will be on hand to lead the ceremony. Between noon and 4pm, the festivities move to the Doris Miller Auditorium. There will be models of aircraft and ships on display in addition to original WWII communications equipment, posters and the tail of a Japanese Dive Bomber known as a Val Dive Bomber, and the same kind of gun Doris Miller fired. It is a .50 caliber water-cooled anti-aircraft gun on a ship mount courtesy of the Admiral Nimitz Museum.
