Retirement Ceremony

The Alamo is committed to connecting, supporting, and honoring our military. Whether you are celebrating a retirement, promotion, or change of command, the Alamo is rich in history and honored to celebrate your milestones. Images below are from a retirement ceremony in Cavalry Courtyard, with photos courtesy of Milestone Media & Photography.

Shaded by Texas pecan trees, Cavalry Courtyard is a distinctive outdoor venue for small receptions and military ceremonies. The courtyard features an elevated stone platform backed by the iconic six flags of Texas, and is surrounded by majestic bronze statues dedicated to the heroes of the Texas Revolution. Contact us to schedule your next event at the Alamo.
