August is here and time for our monthly news for the Veterans of Montgomery County.
The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall will arrive on Aug. 10 to the city of Crawfordsville and the public will be able to view it on the 12, 13 and 14 of Aug. which is just around the corner. We are going to have the parade on Aug. 10 at 11:30 a.m. for all Vietnam Veterans who want to participate. Veterans will be marching down Main Street; most of us participating will be using Golf Carts to carry some of our Vietnam Veterans. The Opening Ceremony is at 11 a.m. on Aug. 12 with the laying of Wreaths and on Aug. 13 the Vietnam Veterans Welcome Homecoming and Vietnam Medal of Honor Recipient Speaker Sammy L. Davis who will speak at 1 p.m. on Aug 13. Mr. Davis will then assist Mike Hamm who is the Veteran Service Officer of the Indiana Department of Veteran Affairs giving out 50 year pins from Vietnam. I am asking all Vietnam Veterans to please come out and see the wall.
