The Sweeny High School class of 1960 installed a veterans memorial at Back Yard Park to honor those who served in the U.S. military. The seven veterans' names, military affiliations and length of service are engraved in tiles and placed at the memorial patio.

The veterans include Billy Weem, Dean Thomas, Ray Harwell, James Holland, Percy Truitt, Garland Thames and Wayne Crosson.

The class of 1960 thanks Sweeny City Hall, Linda Diaz and Raymond Hutchins for their assistance in the class' project.
