Vietnam Welcome Home

Posted by on March 4, 2016

I received this via email.

If you live in the area you might want to attend.

 

The Museum of Military History would like to present the following Public Service Announcement:

Veterans Tribute and Museum of Osceola County, Inc. DBA: Museum of Military History celebrates

Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day

In 2011 the United States Senate unanimously passed a resolution that provided Vietnam Veterans the chance of receiving a proper welcome home. Recognizing the final withdrawal date of all combat and combat-support troops from Vietnam, March 30 honors these veterans by its designation as “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.”

In support of this special day, the Museum of Military History will be hosting a Vietnam Veterans Tribute Ceremony. All VVA Chapter 755 members and Vietnam Veterans are encouraged to attend. We also hope to see any other veterans as well as all veteran supporters attend as we honor and remember the service and sacrifice of those that served.

Our Honorary Guest Speakers include Gary Baura, Command Sergeant Major US Army Special Forces (Ret.) who participated in the only battalion sized combat jump of the war while serving with the 173rd Airborne Brigade. Also speaking will be Vinh Dao, Colonel Vietnam Air Force who served as an officer and pilot from 1964 up until the fall of Saigon in April, 1975.

Admission to the museum will be free for all Vietnam Veterans and 25% off for all other visitors. Any Vietnam Veteran in attendance will receive a 50th Anniversary Commemorative Pin. Museum Memberships will be reduced to $25 for one day only. Memberships are VITAL to the life of our museum and ensure we keep the doors open to educate our visitors and our community that the true cost of freedom has been paid through the service and sacrifice of its nation’s veterans.

Any veteran or other organization that would like to attend can reserve a space by calling the museum at 407-507-3894. Food and drinks will be available in the parking lot.

Donations, individual and corporate memberships, and sponsorships are available to help support the museum, a 501(c) 3 organization. For further information, contact the museum at 407-507-3894.

This event will be attended by professionals and public servants from all over Central Florida. We look forward to your participation and attendance.
