Reunion and Education Gatherings

Reunion and Education Gatherings allow veterans from the same war reunite, share stories of their service and find healing and closure. They also allow family, friends and community members to learn about their loved ones & neighbors’ service and about different eras in history.
These gatherings are a great opportunity to reconnect with fellow Vietnam & Korean veterans and their families. All veterans and their families are welcome and civilians that would like to show support for these amazing men and women. Sit back, enjoy, share, listen and learn about their era. Vietnam: April Korea: July
Come share your service history or come to just take in the history. Gatherings are a great way to open up the lines of communication and healing amongst veterans, their families and their friends.
