This event will thank and honor Vietnam and Vietnam Era Veterans, who served during the period of November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, on behalf of the United States and to thank and honor the families of these Veterans.

A new Vietnam War Commemoration Certificate of Honor program will be launched during the event, and through it, we are honoring these groups:

 

1)  Former, living American Military Prisoners of War,

2)  Immediate family members of American military still unaccounted for from the Vietnam War,

3)  Immediate family members of a veteran listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C., and

4)  Surviving spouses at the time of death

Mayor Tim Burchett will read a Presidential proclamation to honor all Veterans that served during this period.

Veterans from the surrounding counties are asked to join in the celebration and bring your spouse and family members.

The public is encouraged to attend.

Due to technical difficulties, our website went down on September 3, 2016 and did not return until 9-25-16. We are back online thanks to the technical support from V2VT’s new IT professionals at 2:45 Tech.  Jeremi was great!

However, all of the announcements, pages, photos and videos from January 1, 2016 to September 2, 2016 were lost due to human error; yes our webmaster.

We will try to retrieve as much information as possible and will post all recovered announcement on this announcement post.  9-26-16 will be the first announcement since the shutdown.  If you have any information, photos, etc. that you would like to share with us please email us at info@tnvhc.org.

During the next few weeks we redo all of the announcements information during 1-1-16 and 9-3-16; maybe without the photo.  All announcement will be temporarily listed on this page.
