Also participating in the event will be Veteran Service Organizations and other non-profit organizations that support Veterans and their families. Lunch (hot dog, chips, and drink) will be provided, at no cost, to Vietnam War Veterans in attendance.
Vietnam Veteran Status: As part of the welcome home event, all United States Veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces from November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location, will be presented with an official Vietnam War Commemoration lapel pin.
