Vietnam Veterans to be Honored

DAISY MOUNTAIN VETERANS — The Daisy Mountain Veterans (DMV) announced today a ceremony honoring DMV Vietnam Veterans.  Twenty-five of its members who served in Vietnam will be honored at the Anthem Veterans Memorial on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 10 a.m.

Tells DMV event organizer, Jim Oliveri, “Some of these veterans hold multiple combat decorations up to and including the Distinguished Service Cross, America’s second highest military award. Sadly, many have never before been recognized for their service. We hope this event will help to rectify that situation.”

Each honoree will receive the Department of Defense 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War Medallion and a commemorative lapel pin.
