On Monday April 15, 2019 at 7 p.m., The American Legion Post 522 will host a social event to celebrate and honor Vietnam Era Veterans for their service to our country. The celebration will take place at the lower level of the Municipal building. The event is open to all veterans regardless of when you served or in what capacity you served. At this event, Mayor Tamburro, who is also a veteran, will present the “Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin” to all service men and women who served in Vietnam or elsewhere, on active duty, in the inactive National Guard or in the Reserves during the period between Nov. 1955 and May 1975.
Light, non-alcoholic beverages, cookies and nuts will be available at this event. You are encouraged to bring guests of any age to this event so that they may witness and participate in your celebration. Picture taking is permitted. What is required, though, is that you RSVP me, Commander Jack Kirschenbaum, firstname.lastname@example.org or 609 642-6199 to let me know that you plan to attend, if you wish to be called up to receive the lapel pin, and how many guests will be joining you. This way we can plan accordingly. I also need to know in which branch of service you served, when you served and your current home address. Even if you are not a Vietnam Era Veteran, please come anyway to show your support for those who served during that time.
At the beginning of the ceremony there will be the Salute to the Colors and the Pledge of Allegiance followed by a few speeches and the presentation of the Pins. There will be plenty of time to mingle and opportunity to share your experiences of your time in the service. At the close of the ceremony Taps will be played.
