The weatherman brought super weather for the 2018 celebration of Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day. This event honors the last troops leaving Vietnam in 1973 and is observed on March 29th. Chapter 223 and AMVETS Post #40 sponsored the event with about 120 veterans, families, and friends in attendance. Other veteran groups were also in attendance including the VFW and the Purple Heart and the Veterans Administration personnel as well. Everybody enjoyed the hamburgers, hot dogs, beans, salad, and drinks. Thanks to all the volunteers who made the event a success. Looks like we'll have to do this again next year!
