The Michael Trebert Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution in Port Angeles is working with Clallam County Veterans Association to host a Vietnam War Veteran Commemoration Ceremony, at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 26, outdoors at the Northwest Veterans Resource Center, 216 S. Francis St., Port Angeles.
The community is invited to thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War, including prisoners of war, or missing in action, for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the United States and to thank and honor the families of these veterans.
The guest speaker at the ceremony will be Randy Johnson, a Clallam County commissioner and veteran.
County COVID-19 guidelines will be adhered to by wearing facemasks and social distancing.
At this special ceremony, DAR will be honoring all our Vietnam veterans — everyone who served on active duty between Nov. 1, 1955, and May 15, 1975, regardless of location.
The group will also honor surviving spouses and their families; each will receive a certificate and special lapel pin.
The DAR group will distribute to veterans pins that were created to recognize, thank and honor United States military service people who served on active duty during the Vietnam War period.
Two times per year, until 2025, the local DAR chapter plans to identify and recognize Vietnam Veterans.
Those who are a Vietnam veteran or surviving spouse and would like a lapel pin and certificate need contact Candy Gammel, Commemorative Partner co-chair of the Michael Trebert Chapter-NSDAR, at email@example.com or 360-460-6478.
