Join us in honoring and welcoming home our Vietnam Veterans on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at 1100 am.  The event will be held at Ascension Veterans Memorial Park located at 612 S.

These honorable men and women served our country during a time in which their sacrifices were not recognized or valued.  The Ascension Veterans Memorial Park is an official Vietnam War 50th Commemoration Partner and will be honoring Vietnam Veterans, spouses of deceased Vietnam Veterans, former POWs, and family members of those killed in action in Vietnam at the ceremony with commemorative pins. Guest speaker will be Mr. Richard O’Brien a Vietnam Veteran and Purple Heart recipient.
