Vietnam Veterans Day

On Sunday March 28, 2021, members of KWVA Chapter 313 attended and participated in a ceremony held at the War Memorial in Middletown, VA. to recognize and honor all veterans of the Vietnam War.

      We were proud to have this opportunity to recognize our Vietnam War brothers who were not treated well upon their return from Vietnam. We are all pleased for them that they are finally receiving some recognition that has been long overdue.
