WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — The Wichita Falls City Council appointed Alicia Castillo to the Lake Wichita Revitalization Committee as the ex-officio Gold Star family member.
This further helps the committee on their quest to build a Gold Star monument to honor soldiers killed in action. Castillo’s son, Alexis Maldonado was a soldier in Afghanistan and was killed in August of 2010. His family was given a Gold Star for his service.
Having a Gold Star family member on the committee is a requirement for building the monument.
