Letter – Honoring families  of Vietnam fallen

Published 7:59 pm Tuesday, January 17, 2023

Editor, The Smithfield Times:

American Legion Post 49 in Smithfield annually recognizes Vietnam-era military veterans in conjunction with National Vietnam Veterans Day, which falls on March 29. For 2023 the post and veterans from that era will honor the families of servicemen and women who died in the Vietnam War.

We will host a dinner and program on March 26. We are asking any family member, Gold Star family or other relative of a Vietnam War casualty to join us for this event. To help us plan this event we request family members interested in attending to call the post at 757-357-9239, leave your name, the number in your party and a good contact for you (phone, email, and/or mailing address). A formal invitation will be sent to you with more details.
