All local Vietnam Veterans will be honored on Saturday, March 30 with a recognition program and lunch at First Presbyterian Church in Louisiana. Reservations are not necessary. Pike County Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, is hosting the event for the veterans and their spouses, or guest, in recognition of Vietnam Veterans Day, which is March 29. There will be a brief program followed by lunch served by the chapter members.
Stacy Winkelman of the Mexico Veterans Home will speak to the group after lunch. She will distribute information about the facility and answer questions from the group. This is the second time Pike County Chapter has invited a speaker from the veterans home in order for more local people to have information they may need.
This is the fourth year that the chapter has commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War with a special “Welcome Home” event through their partnership with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration.
