DAR invites Vietnam vets to program

The Silver Creek Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution invites local Vietnam War veterans, their families, and the public to attend a program on Tuesday, March 29 at noon at Highland Hope United Methodist Church, 12846 Daiber Road in Highland.

The event will commemorate the last day in which United States troops were on the ground in Vietnam, March 29, 1973.

The commemoration is part of the national 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War (Nov. 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975). A proclamation from President Obama proclaimed May 28, 2012 through Nov. 11, 2025 as commemoration of 50th anniversary of the war.

Those veterans who pre-register their names and the military service in which they served will receive a certificate of appreciation and a pin to honor their service.

For additional information or to register, contact Lola DeGroff at 667-8660.
