On Saturday, May 20, 2023, the American Legion Post 178 Color Guard and cadets from the Lebanon Trail Navy Cadet Corps presented our Nation’s Colors and Service Flags at the  33rd Lone Star Corvette Classic at the Marriott DFW Hotel and Golf Club.

Color Guard veterans included Kevin Robinson, Larry Marshall, Larry Wilhelm, Terry Gilbert, Ted Ruybal, and Bill Drake.

Cadets that attended were Nathan Aaron, Christine Antonelli, Jashwanth Bandlamudi, Jashua Dawson, Ian Willink, Karma Roberts, Morgan Williams, and Camila Ciofuli Suarez.

The Classic is a major event of the Lone Star Corvette Club, which was founded in 1982 and has over 1,200 members in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.  Proceeds benefit the Speedway Children’s Charities and The National Corvette Museum.

The Classic was a two-day event. On Friday there is an opportunity for parade laps at one of North Texas’ premier tracks, Eagles Canyon Raceway.  On Saturday, the day was full of sun, great cars, and wholesome fun. It started with a car show at the parking lot and ended with dinner, awards, and a live auction.
